Peach Wine Recipe

Use fresh, well-ripened peaches—if the fruit isn’t quite ripe it will leave an unpleasantly bitter taste in the wine.

• 2 1/2 pounds ripe peaches
• 2 pounds sugar
• 1 lemon
• 1 Camden tablet (a handy form of sulfur dioxide for disinfecting and sterilizing)
• 2 teaspoons pectin enzyme
• 1 gallon water
• Wine yeast
• Yeast nutrient

1. Peel the peaches, remove the stones and crush the fruit. Cover the pulp with 6 pints of cold water, stir in the crushed Camden tablet and pectin enzyme, and leave to steep for 24 hours.

2. Bring a further 2 pints of water to the boil and dissolve the sugar in it.
