English food and wine are usually backed with a long and interesting history that has been passed on from generation to generation. Some may not be so traditional, but has been so well-liked they were considered a classic still.
Like this Yorkshire beetroot wine. It is simple to make, yet taste so “English” and pleasant to the palate. You can make your own wine if you have:
- 5 pounds of beetroots
- 3 and ½ pounds of Demerara sugar
- A slice of toast
- 1 and ½ gallons of water
- ½ teaspoon of ginger
- ½ ounce of yeast
Looking at these ingredients, you would notice they are simple enough. Once you have readied all the things you would need, the next step is to:
- Wash the beetroots thoroughly before slicing them and putting them in a pot.
- Pour the water and bring to a boil.
- Once it is boiling, lower the heat and simmer it for about an hour.
- After that, put in the sugar and let it simmer again for an additional 20 minutes.
- Then, turn off the heat and let the mixture cool.
- Put the ginger and yeast on the slice of toast and put it on top of the beetroot mixture.
- Let it stand for at least 10 days.
- Next, strain the liquid using a cheese cloth and pour the wine in an airtight bottle.
- Serve and enjoy!
