Yes, there are hundreds of ripe apricots falling off the tree in my backyard. No, I’m not going to make a batch of apricot wine. Nothing against fruit wines, but I already have 5 gallon batches of apple cider, currant wine and cherry wine sitting in the basement that may never get bottled. I just don’t drink the stuff, nor do most of my friends. And I’m running out of space needed for my grape wine endeavors. I probably will bottle some of each, but five gallons makes about 25 750 ml bottles, way more than I would use. I’ve heard of people cooking down unused fruit and wine and making brandy. Now there’s an idea that would take up less space.
