This is a homemade wine recipe from Old Germany. I use muscadines from my neighbor's vineyard. It is easy to make but requires patience.
Blend fruit in blender. Put in large crock or stainless steel container. Add one gallon distilled water for each gallon of fruit juice. Add one pound of sugar for each gallon of juice.
Nine days later: strain and add one pound of sugar per gallon of juice.
Eighteen days later: strain again. Add ONE egg in shell to juice. Slowly add sugar until egg floats to the top, then remove egg.
Nine days later: strain through fine cloth. Put in bottles and enjoy.
