Just cooking up a big batch of broccoli for dinner and there are these big chunks if stalk left. Has anyone tried using them for wine or should I give it a go? If not any tips in what to do with them?

Should be interesting. I wonder how it will taste.

This idea will naturally repel anyone under 25 from drinking it. (I had to say this, to funny not to). Aka age joke and veggies.

This experiment should only be attempted within the confines of a correctional institution.

Read up on tomatoe wine!
This has potential, and there is only one way to find out.

Well, broccoli is a member of the brassica family, as is cabbage. If it were me, I'd use the cabbage wine recipe from Jack Keller's site & just use broccoli instead of cabbage.

Good luck, GF.

Well, I LOVE all veggies but the idea of broccoli wine doesn't sound the least bit appealing to me. I hope the OP does it and proves me wrong, but I still don't think it sounds very good.

I love carrot wine, beet wine, tomato wine, and many others. I just can't wrap my head around cabbage or broccoli wine, though.

Broccoli is probably my favorite vegetable but just reading the title nearly made me sick to my stomach lol. But hey, why not try it?
