I’m just about to head off to enjoy some wine with a good lady friend of mine, but before I go, I wanted to let you know about some new articles and thoughts.
First, I’ve written a review of the book, Making Wild Wines & Meads which you can read here.
Secondly, I’ve started a new wine – parsnip wine with apple concentrate. “Parsnip wine?” you ask? Yes. Find out more about this parsnip wine recipe here.
A note on the recipe – I don’t know if you have ever had parsnips before – for me, I think parsnips are wonderful with wild game such as rabbit or venison. Or in beef stew. Parsnips are a very under rated vegetable in my opinion, and I’m surprised at how many people have never eaten parsnip before.
When I was preparing my parsnip must, one of the things that was noticed in my household was the odour of the parsnips boiling in water – it was a wonderful smell with reminders of apple, yam or sweet potato, and a hint of cinnamon.
If you’ve never cooked with parsnips, I’d encourage you to give them a try. And note the wonderful odour! Then, consider making this parsnip wine recipe.
Tomorrow, if I have time, I’ll be posting another wine “kit” review as well.
Ah, country wines – yes, this is a fun hobby when the winds are blowing and a foot of snow has fallen in my backyard.
For now, I’ll leave you with the articles linked to above, and hopefully your thoughts and comments on parsnip wine!
