Jaathikka Wine / Nutmeg Fruit Wine



You will find Jaathi / Nutmeg Tree in the backyard of many homes in Kerala. People usually collect the nutmeg and mace and discard it?s fruity yellow cover. It is really good for making pickle, wine, chammanthi etc.... Back home we used to make a lot of wine and pickle with it. When in season you can collect a lot of these fruits in one or two days and since the fruit won?t stay for long, even inside the fridge, you have to make wine or pickle with it immediately..... Jaathikka Wine tastes really good and this is my hubby?s favorite?. I got some Jaathikka thodu from my sister in laws backyard on my last vacation....Hope you will try this wine when you get a lot of Jaathikka....  I am sure you will enjoy this wine :).....
