Hi all, Its gett almost time for my palm trees to start putting out the fruit

pods. I have search all over for a recipe but with no luck. I e-mailed Jack

Keller and he said that he has had the jelly but doesn't have a recipe for

wine, but if I come up with one he would like it. I guess I could just crush

add water, the usual additives, and ferment, but I believe that more is

needed. Such as some kind of fruit juice or a combo of another fruit. I don't

even know what type of acid they are, citric malic etc. The fruit is small

about the size of a grape and are orang to otange yellow when ripe. They

can be sweet to semi sweet. My trees produce a lot of seed pods during

the summer with hundreds of fruit. Any ideas?

Bill

Well, sounds like you are going to have to wing it, my man. Sorry, I just finished a bottle of '03 Oakberry, and too bad I can't put it up against Ed and Terry's respective blueberry wines and kick their curse with it, but anyway...

I would start with 3 or 4 pounds of those babies per gallon of finished wine desired. Pick them at the peak of ripeness, rinse them off in clear water, and freeze. If they don't have seeds, run them through a juicer after thawing, and pour it all into a fine mesh straining bag. Add water to bring the level up according to how much fruit you are using to however many gallons of wine you are expecting. Try it at 12% PA the first time. Adjust acid or not depending on the results of either an acid test kit or your taste buds. Too much acid will be very sour. If the must seems to be lacking something, then yes, go ahead and use some bananas or some white grape concentrate. Use yeast nutrient and pectic enzyme per package instructions. I would go with Lalvin K1V-1116 the first go round. Just go with what you know. OK?

Hi Hippie,

Thanks, thats what ill end up doing unless I come with something new

or different. I have a friend who will be going to Atlanta this weekend to
+
an Asian Market. they have some interesting juice found no

where else, such as Palm juice, Star fruit juice, Papaya juice. all kinds of

wierd stuff. I asked him to look for any concentrates and give me a list.

If all else fails then I'll go by the traditional route as you mentioned.

Thanks again. Ill keep ya posted.

Bill
