Parsnip wine.
« on: June 28, 2015, 21:11 »
I was given a bottle of 1988 parsnip wine as a thank you recently and have to say I was a bit dubious to say the least. The OH opened it tonight and I have to say it is lovely!

Sweet, fragrant, full of flavour. Definitely going to be on my list of wines to have a go at.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

Make sure the parsnips have been 'frosted' to increase the sugar content.  Cheers,  Ton y.

Sorry for a stoopid Newbie question - but - would putting the parsnips in the freezer have the same effect?  :wub:

I don't think that would work.  The change of starch to sugar is a slow process and roots gradually get sweeter as the winter passes.

It would be interesting to experiment though :)
