    It's summer, and lots of fruit is just hanging to be picked. 

    With just 3 pounds of fruit - apricots, peaches, apples, whatever you got, just make sure they're juicy - and 2-3 pounds of sugar you can make your own fruit wine at home in just 7 easy steps:

    1. Wash the fruit, take out the seeds and put the fruit into a 3 quart jar.

    2. Cover the fruit with sugar.

    3. Pour about a glass of clear water over the whole thing. Ideally, the water should cover everything inside the jar up to the very top of it.

    4. Cover the opening of the jar with natural fabric that lets air through and put the jar somewhere warm.

    5. Wait for about a week. When the mixture starts bubbling intensively, letting out CO2 bubbles from the fermentation, take off the fabric and put on a plastic lid with a hole in it. Put a straw through that hole and put the other end of the straw in a glass of water. THus you will create an effective water filter that will let out gas but won't let in anything you don't want in your wine - ants, bugs, anything that can be attracted by sugar.

    6. Wait for several month till the jar stops bubbling. Be sure fermentation stopped. Filter the mixture through fabric or a filtering pan, separating soft fermented fruit from the liquid.

    7. Basically, you can drink it.

    Cheers!

    I would recommend to try different amount of sugar every round to find the ultimate balance. You can try it after half a year.

    When you've found something good. Use the same ratio to make a really big one :3

    Sometimes I talk until I don't know what I'm talking about anymore 

    I'd like to thank Google translate for making this post possible

    I usually use about 800 grams of sugar per 3 liter jar and about 2 kilos of fruit. Now I'm using apples, because apricot and cherry trees didn't seem to perform this well this summer, so I put about 900 grams of sugar to compensate for the apples natural sourness.
