Ingredients to make 1 gallon of wine:
2 – 3 honeydew melons
250 g sultans
1 kg of sugar
1 cup of black tea (tannin)
juice of 1 lemon (citric acid)
1 tsp pectolase
1 tsp yeast nutrient
1 tsp yeast
How to make honeydew melon wine:
First, chop the sultanas up finely and add them to your fermentation bucket.
Cut the melons into slices and remove the seeds. Now chop the melon into small chunks and add the bucket.
Next add the 1 kg of sugar, 1 cup of black tea, 2 pints of boiling water over the melons, and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Top up with 6 pints of boiling water, stir in well and leave until the mixture is at room temperature.
Once the mixture is at room temperature, add the rest of the ingredients (lemon juice, pectolase, yeast nutrient, yeast) and mix in well.
Fasten the lid on your bucket and leave to ferment for 3 days.
After 3 days strain off the wine using a straining bag and discard the melons. Leave the wine to ferment for another 7 days or until the wine has stopped bubbling.
Finally, once fermentation is complete syphon off your wine into a clean jar or bottles.
