What You Can Make
This book contains easy to make recipes from across history and cultures. The recipes can be divided roughly into these categories:
The Focus of Strong Waters
This book focuses on simple methods of production that require the minimum effort for maximum results for a broad range of beverages. For example, although you could collect apples, crush them into pomace, put them into a cider press, squeeze them, and ferment the liquid into hard cider, why not buy apple juice, mix it with additional juice to get the optimum balance of flavors, and ferment it? And if you make a few batches of cider from juice and want to start from apples, buy a book on cider making and have at it! My goal is to get you started and show you how rewarding the process can be. Who knows, by the time you’ve made a few batches of wine, you may find that the perfect aperitif for a Mexican dinner is your own jalapeño wine, or that curling up in front of the fireplace in February is a little cozier with a glass of elderberry melomel. You won’t know until you try.
