David Nicolaus Potato Wine Recipe For each gallon of wine you desire, add the following ingredients. 7 large potatoes peeled and sliced. 1 gallon of lukewarm water. (Not hot) 1 lb. seedless raisins 5 lb. Sugar 2 ea. Un-peeled Oranges & Lemons. Quartered. Place all the ingredients in a crock and add a yeast starter to mix. Cover with a piece of cheese cloth and let stand in a warm area. Check each day and press mix back down into the wine. The fermentation should last for 12 to 15 days. When done fermenting, remove wine from crock and place in cask. Be sure to strain mixture to remove as much of the mash as you can. Set cask in a cool area such as a basement and let stand for at least 3 to 4 months, until “fine” (clear). Be sure to seal cask with an air lock devise. That is, gas from the wine should be able to escape, but fresh air should not be able to enter cask. The finished wine should be a clear amber colored liquid. After about 4 months, you can draw wine from cask and bottle. Be sure to store in a cool, dark place.

David Nicolaus Hi Sheila, No we are not related. John's father was named Martin but his mother was named Agnes but her maiden name was Shotar. They came from Croatia. I have never known any one named Motko. I hope this helps. David Nicolaus
