Orange Wine Recipe

The best oranges to use are sweet, juicy and thin-skinned, and you’ll need about 12 large ones for the required amount of orange juice. As with all citrus fruits, avoid including any white pith or pips. The addition of a little lemon juice helps the acidity of this wine. 

• 2 pints fresh orange juice
• 3 pounds sugar
• 2 lemons
• 1 Camden tablet (a handy form of sulfur dioxide for disinfecting and sterilizing)
• 1/2 teaspoon grape tannin
• Water
• Wine yeast
• Yeast nutrient

1. Cut the oranges in half and use a lemon squeezer to press out 2 pints of juice, removing any pips.

2. Make the juice up to 6 pints with cold water.
