RASPBERRY DRAGONFRUIT SHIRAZ Island Mist Wine Making Kit. This blush wine has been given some fire of excitement with the addition of sweet dragonfruit then gently splashed with tangy cool raspberries. Light the grill and sear some spicy shrimp skewers, or prepare some Thai green curry cuisine for a night of fire and flare. Dragonfruit (pitaya): To prepare a dragonfruit for consumption, the fruit is cut open to expose the flesh. The fruit's texture is sometimes likened to that of the kiwi fruit due to the presence of black, crunchy seeds. The flesh, which is eaten raw, is mildly sweet and low in calories. The seeds are eaten together with the flesh, have a nutty taste and are rich in lipids. The fruit is also converted into juice or wine, or used to flavor other beverages. The flowers can be eaten or steeped as tea. - 7.5 liters/2 gallons - Makes up to 23 liters/6 gallons. Approx. 30 - 750ml bottles. Ready to bottle in 4 weeks.
