Homemade Wine

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
This recipe is great if you're ok with Carlos Rossi grade wine. The first question I had when I saw the recipe was, "how sweet is it?" Because I prefer dry over sweet, I cut the sugar down to less than 2 cups. MISTAKE. It tasted alcoholic (great) but unpalatable (not so great). After fermentation, I added sugar to taste, and it's fine now. My process was such: Sanitize all equipment with hot water and dish soap, rinsing thoroughly. I used a ballon, active dry yeast, and welches grape concentrate. I let the yest sit in warm water to dissolve, and put the sugar in warm water to make a syrup. I mixed all ingredients togetherm sealed it with a balloon, gave it a few holes to let the gasses escape, and after 5 days, the balloon deflated. I filtered it with a funnel and coffee filters once and now I have a Carlos Rassi tasting sweet wine, which is chilling in my fridge. Like i said, this is ok if you like cheap, sweet wines that will get you drunk fast. I'll make more and experiment with white grape. I want something that will be less sweet but still palatable.

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Holy Moley this is GOOD! I love that it's fast and knead-free. This is indeed a dense loaf, but it's perfect for sandwiches or with a smear of jam/honey. I used mainly white all purpose (bc I was low on wheat), used whole uncooked oats, substituted the honey with vanilla yogurt, doubled the recipe, and added about an extra cup of flour to get it the right loaf-like consistency to turn out on a baking stone. I'm making two loafs again tonight to last the coming week. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing!
