Getting ready to try my hand at making mead. Can the Ancient Orange Mead recipe be modified by using any other fruit?

I'm pretty sure that others have used other fruit- for some reason, blueberries stick in my mind- but I have not.

Thanks! I have an abundance of blackberries and cherries but I could just as easily seek out some citrus as well.

The orange is nice, even though I'm not an orange beverage fan. But blackberries sound awesome!

I opened a bottle of an awesome blackberry mead from Honeywood winery in Oregon last night. Very mellow on the sweetness and really just a hint of blackberry. Worth a try I think.

I used blueberries and vanilla in this recipe instead of the oranges and spices and it turned out fantastic.

Basically everything is the same except I omitted the oranges and spices and added a lb of frozen blueberries that I thawed out and a tsp of vanilla extract. This was actually just a half gallon batch I did just as an experiment and my wife loves it.

@ yooper, I am trying my hand a mead today, Is the honey just used for the sugars or does really have a slight honey flavor? I have tasted a mead before and I didn't get any honey flavors. It was like stale alcoholic water.
