Hello <>,

Thanks for subscribing to Strawberry Recipes!

I hope you will enjoy this ezine. Please do me a favor and forward it to your friends.

In most of the northern hemisphere we have cold winter weather now. This is the perfect time for strawberry punch (with or without wine). When I was young we used to have strawberry punch for Christmas, that's why punch goes with snow for me.

Try the strawberry punch recipes below and enjoy. By the way, if it's really cold, you might want to try a favorite of mine: the Hot Strawberry Punch. Add a little bit of sugar and boil it for a minute or so. It's the perfect warm-up after skiing or being outside in the snow for a while.

Strawberry Wine

This is strawberry wine recipe is a lot of work and you should only try it, if you feel patient enough to wait at least 4 weeks before drinking it!

• 3 to 5 gallons water
• 5 tbl. yeast
• 5 tsp nutrient

Grind strawberries and limes, add sugar and let stand 24 to 36 hours. Strain then add rest of ingredients. Run water through pulp and add to above. Add enough water to fill 5 gallon container.

Cover loosely protecting from insects and stir daily for 1 week. Skim off any foam or solids daily before stirring. Let stand another 2 to 4 weeks, then siphon and strain into another container.

When siphoning, do not siphon sludge from bottom of container. Let stand again and repeat siphoning process 2 to 4 times until wine is clear.

Bottle and let stand for at least 3 months for best flavor.
