    Our 15 year old has taken an interest in wine making as a few of our neighbors have vineyards. We got him some wine making equipment for Christmas and he is working on a batch of black raspberry right now.

    Don't know if this thread will last (is it appropriate for all ages?) Made Blueberry/grape, Strawberry/watermelon and apple this year. Last years batch was Blueberry/grape and apple. 1st attempt was a concord (big red) from my own vines two years ago almost gone now but I still have a couple of bottles aging. Still going through the learning curve but age cures a lot of mistakes. (or so I'm told). Next year I should have a good crop of white seedless so I'm looking forward to that.

    I also enjoy making wine. I have watermelon, grape, and plum in my cellar right now. The watermelon is really weird...lol

    Jalapeno, tomato, pear, raspberry, cherry, lots of blackberry and elderberry, orange, banana, white grape, and salsa. The salsa and jalapeno are great for cooking, but we have friends that love it for drinking.
    Elderberry, blackberry and rhubarb cordials.
    Joe's mead, blueberry mead.
    I would love to make beer, but haven't taken the time to try.
