I was only trying to be funny because there is not a lot of variety in wine itself. You could try blending wines, banana wine jelly, banana vinegar or may be a pickled ripe banana with wine.

I am a hobby beekeeper with friends that are mead makers. So I must suggest make a banana Melomel. Make the wine with honey and banana.

I have a standing offer to friends. I give you a gallon of honey. When it is ready, give me three bottles of mead. With honey at 50 dollars a gallon, any wine maker in this neighborhood will take me up on the offer.

I always wondered what wine made from jelly palm fruit would taste like! It’s a sweet but a little tart fruit! Excellent to make jelly! Also called a pinto palm!

Anyone ever hear of it being made?

I made some years ago, about early 90s (5 gal). It has an after taste that i didn't care for. ... BUT after a year, the taste went away and was a pleasant dry white wine. i have access to several 'jelly' palms but haven't made any more since. Best i remember, the berries contain a lot of sugar and i didn't have to add much, if any, additional sugar. ... I use a hydrometer and add sugar until I get a 14% content. This is usually about 10lb to 5 gal of 50/50 grape juice & water. Thus my wines are slightly dry.

Hi Slim-

Welcome aboard the Banana Express.

If I had that many nanners to work with, I'd just make a nice banana mash and add some yeast. Put a little heat to it, run it through a thumper jug and get some good old fashioned panther piss, as we call it here in Appalachia.

Pindo palm.

We had them planted all over the Charlotte area, but two years in a row, we had a few nights where the temps dropped to single digits. All are now dead, and I cover four counties with my paper routes. All dead. It's a shame, as I was going to plant one to have a taste myself!
