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.
Dandelion Wine: 2 packages baker's yeast, 2.5 cups sugar, 1 quart dandelions, 1 thinly sliced lemon, 1 thinly sliced orange, fill with tap water. Vent the lid and place in the dark for 3 weeks. Strain using cheesecloth and return liquid to jar. Wait another 3 weeks and strain again. It may last on the shelf, if well-sealed, for several years.
