Delean's Strawberry Wine
(Found in Walter C. Scott's papers in his hand writing.)
Pick one gallon of strawberries; cap and wash them. Place the berries in a stone
or glass jar. Mash thoroughly by hand. Add a small amount of water (1-cup) to
be sure they are covered.
Cover the jar with 2 or 3 thicknesses of cheese cloth to let the air in or out and keep insects out.
Let this set for 3 to 5 days in the kitchen or other warm place until the juice and pulp separate.
Strain the juice out. Put 2 1/2 pounds sugar in a 1 gallon glass jar and add the juice. Add water to make 1 gallon. Stir well, put one thickness of cheese cloth over the top of jar and place a saucer on top. Stet the jar in the basement and let nature take its course. In 2 or 3 weeks it is ready for sampling. Should not be bottled for several months.
