We have made many homemade wines and in hopes of getting rid of some we had a wine tasting party instead of our usual Oktoberfest. We had lots of cheese, fruit, brownies, and other appetizers. We sent everyone home with some wine too.
We got a lot of plums from some friends, we went back for more but the bear had eaten them. So in addition to making wine we also made some plum jam with honey and agave instead of sugar and canned it. It set well and tasted delicious.
