Homemade Clementine Mead Recipe
This is the first mead that we ever made, and it turned out so amazing... everything else has pretty much paled in comparison. Definitely one of our top 3 favorite homemade wine recipes!
If you're going to make a batch of this, act fast - we used peels from "Cuties" oranges, which are only in season for a few months each year. Love them... I can snarf a crate by myself, in a sitting, if left to my own devices. Yum. Anyway, I think their season end is coming up, so stock up! This starts out incredibly fragrant - almost like a delicious, fruity tea - but don't drink much of it before fermenting! The finished product is even better!
Another nice thing about this wine is that it is very good when fairly “young”, compared to many meads - At only 6 months old, this tasted amazing. Age it if you like – we haven’t been able to keep any long enough to see how it ages. Our first 5 gallon batch was almost all gone LONG before the next Cuties season had started!
