In its simplest form, mead is a fermented alcohol drink made with honey and water, also sometimes called "honey wine." Here's how to make a strawberry mead (or melomel) that's easy enough for beginners like me!
Used this recipe to make my first batch of mead. I will probably make a few more batches this way to see how it turns out and then start investing in some real homebrewing equipment. After reading several forums, this is supposed to work just fine to make it. http://www.makemead.net/easy-bread-yeast-mead-recipe.aspx
Tej (Ethiopian Honey Wine) from Food.com: Tej is a wine made from fermented honey and a special kind of hops called gesho. It is similar to mead, this is a shorcut way to make it.
