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
• 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
