Believe me, these wine glasses of my mother's never saw wine this good. Usually, it was Concord Grape Mogen David. Sometimes, she'd go all out and buy Elderberry. This is much, much better.
It was worth waiting three weeks to enjoy this orange and spice wine. Yet another good reason never to discard an orange peel again.
From Simca's Cuisine
You Will Need:
the peel of 8 large oranges (or 4 ounces) dried for two weeks
2 whole cloves
1 quart dry white wine
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3-4 tablespoons Cognac
Place dried peel, cinnamon and cloves into a quart jar. Pour in the wine and seal. Set in the fridge (or any cool place) for 8-10 days. Strain through a fine sieve. Remove 1 cup of wine to a small enameled saucepan. Whisk in sugar and heat only until dissolved-do not boil. Remove from heat, add to the rest of the wine. Add the Cognac to taste. Keep chilled and serve cold.
