Instructions
  1. Remove wing tips. Place wing pieces in a zip lock bag and pour in the two cups of Aronia Juice. Seal and refrigerate overnight. In a medium sauce pan, place Aronia, sugar, butter, Frank's Hot Sauce, Cumin, the cinnamon sticks, the 1/4 cup of Aronia Juice and honey. Bring to a boil, lower to simmer and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat and refrigerate until needed. The next day, drain off marinade and pat the wings dry with paper towels. Must be dry so they won't splatter in the hot oil. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven about half filled with oil. Heat to 350 degrees F using a candy thermometer. Heat over to 250 degrees F to keep batches warm between frying. Cook wing pieces in three batches by placing in hot oil and frying for 8 minutes. Try to maintain the oil at 350 degrees F. Reheat dipping sauce until it is a liquid again. Using a strainer, remove cooked wings to a large bowl and ladle in one quarter of the dipping sauce then toss in the bowl. Pour out onto a sheet pan and hold in the warm oven. Repeat for the second and third batches then pour out onto a serving platter. Take the remaining one quarter of the dipping sauce and serve on the side with the wings. ENJOY!

Recipe Notes

Ideas:

Meat Glaze

Sparkling Aronia Drink (serving size = 1 glass):  1/3 c. Honey Aronia Concentrate mix, 2/3 cup unsweetened Seltzer water, 1 lemon wedge

Aronia Drink (serving size = 1 glass): 1/3 c. Honey Aronia Concentrate mix, 2/3 c. water, 1 lemon wedge

Aronia Punch (Serves 28 - 1/2 cup portions):  2 Liters Ginger Ale, 6 oz. frozen lemon juice concentrate, 6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate, 6 oz. Aronia juice concentrate - 25 brix (not the honey mix), 1 pint lemon or orange sherbet.  Combine all concentrates.  Add Ginger Ale.  Spoon sherbet into bowl.  Serve immediately.

Additional ideas:

Mix a bit of Aronia Concentrate in vanilla ice cream.  Make Aronia smoothies - use your imagination.  Aronia bonds chemically to milk products.

Mix a bit of Aronia concentrate into apple sauce.

Combine a bit of Aronia Concentrate with apple juice, or any fruit juice blend that compliments cranberries well.  I stirred up a 12 oz. frozen concentrate mis of Apple Raspberry and added some Aronia Concentrate.

Instructions
  1. In a large enamel or stainless steel pot, boil the honey in water (1 part honey to 2 parts water - use the empty honey jar to measure the water) and 1 cup Aronia concentrate and sack of berries for 10-20 minutes, skimming off any foam that forms. (The foam will contain water impurities and beeswax residue.)
  2. Remove sack of berries. Let cool. Add the Campden tablet, if desired, and let the mixture sit, well covered for 24 hours.
  3. In a jar, make a yeast starter culture by combining the yeast, yeast nutrient, and 1 cup water. Cover and shake vigorously, let stand 1-3 hours, until bubbly; then add to the must.
  4. Let the mixture ferment for 5-10 days. It is recommended to rack meads after the most vigorous fermentation; siphon the wine into a 1-gallon sterilized airlocked fermentation vessel. In 3 months, rack into another sterilized airlocked container. After about 6 months, rack into aother sterilized airlocked container.
  5. Rack again right before bottling - about a year after fermentation started.
  6. Then bottle and cork the finished mead, and store it in a cool cellar.
  7. Age for at least six months before opening a bottle.
Recipe Notes

All utensils should be sterilized before starting this recipe.  Additionally,  siphon and racking activities should involve sterilized equipment.
