Making Peach Persimmon Wine

Persimmon Peach
As I promised, I would provide you the steps I had taken to make Peach Persimmon Wine.  I started Sunday, October 30.  I mashed fresh and frozen persimmons, which had fallen from my grandma's tree. This year was tough because the heat and dryness dried the fruit toward the end of the season.  Luckily we had some frozen from year still.  That was pushing it on the freezing limit.  What's great about frozen fruit is that it is easily mashed. I mashed 13 pounds to be exact.  I combined this with the 5 pounds of peach pulp (which is super easy to put in a bag and mash with your palms) I froze months earlier.
