The delicious Anglo-Indian recipe of Beetroot Wine is literally the easiest wine to make at home.

To make the beetroot wine, firstly the beetroot needs to be peeled, washed, and cut into pieces, which in turn need to be soaked in water for at least a couple of hours.

After that, the beetroot pieces need to be boiled in about 3 litres of water along with cloves and ginger until the beetroot becomes nice and soft. Take it off the heat, mash the beetroot pieces nicely and allow them to cool for a few hours. After that, strain it and add lime juice, orange juice, and the sugar. When the mixture is appropriately cold, pour it into a stone jar.

Now, take ½ a tsp of yeast and spread it on a slice of toasted bread and allow it to float in the beetroot liquid, while keeping the jar shut tight for 14 days. After 2 weeks, strain the wine into another vessel before allowing it to stand for 1 more week to drain away any extra sediments. Enjoy with your dinner!
