Dandelion Wine

Kris Ball, e-mail message to Michael Miller.


I Was going through grandma's recipe box last night looking for something good for Turkey day. I'm typing them verbatim...you may have to use your judgement, because grandmas was famous for, "a little of this, a little of that." BTW, what do you serve with Butter Balls? Noodles? I don't remember ever having them. (And note grandma's spelling--Dan Quayle would have been proud!) And has anyone ever had Dandelion Wine? Sounds awful!

6 cups Dandelion blooms
12 cups sugar
1 gal. hot water

Let set till cool. Add 1 cake of yeast. Let set 3 to 5 days. Strain in jars with loose lids to finish fermentation and clear.
