How to Make Dandelion Wine

This is an old recipe that’s been passed around for over a hundred years.

I collect as many flower tops as I can and adjust the recipe accordingly.

You will need:

• glass jugs or growlers

• a few balloons

• 8 cups dandelion heads

• 9 cups sugar

•4 oranges

• 3 lemons

• 1 pkg champagne yeast

Pour 16 cups boiling water over flowers and cover.

Let Sit for 3 days.

Strain the tea.

Add 9 cups of sugar, and the juice of 4 oranges and 3 lemons. Stir.

Dissolve 1 packet of champagne yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water to dissolve and then add to wine. Mix really well to dissolve all the sugar.

Ppur into your bottles.

Cover the lid with a balloon and store in a dark place for 6 weeks. When the balloon inflates you can loosen it to let off some gas.

Pour yourself a glass and enjoy!

Happy Homesteading Xx
