Old Time Homemade Wine Recipes?

I'm searching for recipes to make homemade wine. My dad made elderberry wine when I was a little kid. I barely remember him making it, but it was in a big crock. Anyone have some old time recipes for homemade wine? I would love to give it a try. Dad is gone, but the memories linger on. Thanks everyone.

Care to try some apple or dandelion wine? I have a great book called Make Your Own Convenience Foods by Don and Joan German that you might be able to get from your library either in collection or by interlibrary loan. If you're interested try the Canadian Living Magazine website and see if you can get their Cranberry Liqueur recipe.It is a Christmas staple for me and is such a glorious ruby red.

Hi Meg,
Is it possible to share the cranberry liqueur recipe as I can't find it in the website anymore.

2 (12 ounce) packages fresh cranberries
2 1/2 cups vodka
1/2 cups simple syrup
3/4 Lemon peel
3/4 Orange peel
1 cinnamon stick and 1/8 teaspoon of allspice (optional) but yummy!


Pulse cranberries in a food processor just until roughly chopped; transfer to a clean glass container. Add vodka, simple syrup, lemon peel, orange peel, cinnamon stick, and allspice to cranberries; stir until well mixed. Seal container with a lid and store in a cool dark area, 3 to 5 days, stirring several times a day. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a glass bottle and refrigerate.
