Dandelion Wine

A homemade dandelion wine recipe "so therapeutic to the kidneys and digestive system that it was deemed medicinal even for the ladies."


Another pinned wrote:My Irish Grandmother's recipe for Dandelion Wine. Since we have chosen the Dandelion as the official plant badge of Xmarks, I thought I would post my grandmother's recipe for Dandelion wine. It was included in a disc that my son made us for Christmas. He copied a bunch of old hand written and old recipe newspaper articles to a Cd, from an old notebook he found in my Grandmother's house. There are 55 recipes dating from the 1920s to the early 1950s.
