    Do you have a freezer?

    Freeze the apples for a week, thaw them and press..........(even pressing by hand might work)

    take the juice and add it to 7 pints water and enough sugar to take the SG to 1.080

    1 tsp pectolase
    1 tsp yeast nutrient
    good quality yeast

    no acid (there will be plenty in the apple juice)

    ferment to 1.010 and add the aldi black forest fruit....

    ferment to dry, stabilise (campden and sorbate) let sit a week and sweeten to SG 1.004

    no bananas, no straining....better quality wine
