Yields 500ml
Ingredients
15 starfruits, washed, sliced
5 small limes, cut into half
100g sugar

Method
1. Wash, clean and slice starfruits.
2. In a big bowl, add starfruits mixed with sugar..toss like salad
3. Squeeze out lime juice over it. add limes together to mix too
4. Put the contents in a glass jar, tighten the cover.


5. Leave it aside for 7 days. Loosen the cover every alternate day.
6. Every day you should see some bubbles building up in the jar. It should smell of wine and not mouldy.
7. After the 7th day, you can open the jar, sieve out the wine. The starfruits tend to oxidized and change colours. Throw away the fruits.
8. Harvested wine should be kept in the fridge. Drink it cold with ice.

Gina,

How big are the starfruits? Are they normal size or small ones? From the pictures, they look like small ones. Must we only put the not-so-ripe ones? Or can we put in ripe ones?

Alannia

its very small because my neighbour's tree grows small fruits. Its not fully ripe, so I pluck it form the tree. I don't want to go and buy ripe ones since my neighbour always give me the starfruits for free. so in turn, I bake or cook curries for his family yummy

I have another neighbour who grows the green colour jambu tree..and never harvest the fruits. she leave it there to rot!

maybe must go and make friend with her ... grin
