Dandelions. Homeowners despise them and although I’m not quite yet a homeowner I do believe I’ve found the solution that will raise the lovely dandie from green lawn perfectionist’s arch nemesis to a tasty value added condiment. Dandelion Capers!
Dandelions are on the move, taking over lawns, one sunny flower at a time. This simple recipe just takes flowers, sugar and a little time. Why make Dandelion Wine?
Weeds + Sugar = Boozy Sunshine in a Bottle.
I have seen a lot of good things in my back yard lately. I decided to just go take some photos of the wild edibles there, so I could show you. Who knows? Maybe you’ll see some familiar plants and find some food or medicine in your own back yard.
Shrubs are all the rage lately, so I tried a Dandelion Shrub. You infuse dandelion petals in a mixture of raw vinegar, water & sugar, then use the resulting syrup to make a refreshing drink or cocktail. Your gin and tonic will never be the same.
One man’s weed is another man’s wine...or at least, it can be. Round up the troops to pick your pesky dandelions and turn those babies into out-and-out wine (with a little help from Father Fermentation).
