Detailed recipe for wine from black currant

- Black overripe currant - 3 kg;
- Granulated sugar - 2 kg.
Before preparing the wine from the currant, you must make a leaven. To do this, take 100 grams of dark raisins (preferably with bones), it is good to sort it out, wash it in a colander and put it in a glass jar. After that, dried fruit should be flavored with 50 g of granulated sugar and pour warm boiled water (2 fingers above the sweet product).
