Grape leaves produce a tangy and surprisingly fruity wine. Those wishing to experiment may substitute edible leaves of other nonaromatic plants such as raspberry, blackberry, currant and stinging nettles. Even very young oak and walnut leaves are popular with herbal winemakers.
- 4 pounds grape leaves
- 2 gallons water
- 8 cups white sugar
- 1 packet wine yeast
- Place grape leaves in a crock or large stainless steel pot. Boil the water and pour it over the leaves. Cover and let sit 3 days, stirring a couple times a day. Strain. Proceed with steps 2 through 8 from Basic Worty Wine.
