Are Dandelions taking over your yard?  Put those weeds to good use and make Dandelion Wine.

For years I have heard about Dandelion Wine and have wanted to make it. this year I finally attempted it and I was super impressed and glad I did!   Dandelion Wine is a sweet dessert wine, made with dandelion petals, lemons and oranges;  It tastes like summer in a glass.   It is a bit time consuming brewing the wine, but it is well worth the effort!  The recipe yield about 5 gallons of wine or about 24 wine bottles.
