A Very Ancient Craft
4 Ib. peeled very ripe bananas and a few banana skins in good condition
Alternatively 1 1/2 lb. dried bananas may be used instead
6 oz. raisins
3 Ib. sugar
1 gallon water
8 oz. citric acid
Peel the bananas, mash them, chop the raisins, cut up the banana skins, and put them into the mashing vessel. Pour on one gallon boiling water and when cool add a teaspoonful of pectozyme, the citric acid and one Campden tablet. Stir daily for three days, then strain and press, add the sugar, yeast and nutrient, and ferment.
