Most supermarkets sell a mixture of blackberries, strawberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants. Waitrose sell a good quality red grape juice.


  • Wash sultanas in warm water and then mince.
  • Place frozen fruit, minced sultanas and half the sugar in a bucket, cover with 2 litres of boiling water and crush the fruit.
  • When cool, add nutrient, pectic enzyme and yeast and ferment on the pulp for 2-3 days.
  • Strain and press fruit lightly.
  • Add grape concentrate or juice and the remaining sugar and place in a demijohn, topping up with water if grape concentrate has been used.
  • It is best to leave a bit of space until the fermentation has died down.
  • Then top up the demijohn with cooled boiled water and ferment to dryness before following usual stabilization and racking processes.
