This is a sweet fruit wine that we came up with after learning the basics of fermenting. We started the fermentation in mid-September and we're enjoying it now (mid-October). If we had any patience we would wait a couple more months and it would be much better, but we're very satisfied with it now.
Cooking time is fermenting time. You'll need two special pieces of equipment that you can buy for under $3 and use forever: an airlock and a stopper (that fits your bottle neck). Both are available at brew stores.
