I borrowed this book a while back from an excellent friend (thanks, Gretchen!), and I am sorry to say I have yet to return it. I really should find my own copy. It's a great little book, full of tidbits and stories and some simple, excellent recipes for homemade wines. I just followed one for making plum wine, which is happily burping away in the fermentation bucket, and if everything goes right it should be a highly drinkable potion in about a year's time.
There's all kinds of recipes in there: carrot wine, peapod wine, bean wine...now that one could have some interesting side effects!
