I suppose you could make tomatoe wine just like I make other weird wines but think I'll use them to make salsa instead. Made Jalapeno wine before but I didn't try it except it was kick butt to marinate jerky with. Made some catnip wine years ago but drink a little glass of it and put me to sleep.

For starters Diane, you will need a 5 gallon carboy with an air lock. Then 15 lbs of fruit---wine yeast---citric acid--yeast energizer--pectic enzyme--potassium sorbate and 9 1/2 lbs of sugar. Then you----WAIT--the rest is an old family recipe and "Duke aint talking !! "
Guns, I might have to make some "mater wine". Too often what I like makes nasty wine. Watermelon and cantaloupe wine aint fit to give to the coon  hounds !! Dandelion tastes like Mt Dew. Persimmon wine still is King--or was until I made cherry wine this year---but for all the gallons I make a year, I might drink one shot of each 5 gallons. Give me Strawberry margaritas and I'm as happy as a pig in a mud puddle !!!
I'll leave the wine drinking to Jo.

Diane, I don't have a recipe for it.  An old gentleman in Latham where I grew up made all kinds of wine and I never tasted any that was bad.  His rubarb wine was pretty tasty also.  But I do have a recipe for elderberry wine that is real easy.  I've used this recipe to make cherry, grape, strawberry, and of course elderberry.  I will send you the recipe.  And you will not need any yeast or all that other good stuff.

Jarhead, I agree, your persimmon wine is very good.  Of course you haven't shared any cherry with me, so I can't compare.
