Potato Wine from our collection of Yorkshire Recipes, Yorkshire sayings and more Yorkshire stuff!

Potato Wine

Wash well but do not peel 1/2 gallon small potatoes.
Put them into a pan with 1 gallon of water.
Bring to boil for 5 min (If any longer the potatoes might burst and make wine cloudy)
Have ready a stone jar or bowl.
Put into the jar 3 lb Demerara sugar, the rind of 2 sliced lemons.
Strain over this through a sieve the boiled liquor from the potatoes, stir the dissolved sugar, and return to pan.
A piece of bruised ginger may be added if liked.
Boil for 1/2 hour then strain into bowl and when cold bottle, add about a couple of raisins to each bottle.
Cork lightly.
This wine is delicious if kept over 12 months.
