    2      Litres        Dandelions                              .
    1 1/2  Lb            Sugar
    4                    Oranges
    1      Gallon        Water
                         Yeast And Nutrient
 
 Don't forget, that the flowers should really be picked in sunshine or at
 midday, so that the flowers are fully opened, and the making of the wine
 should be done immediately.
 
 Measure the yellow heads, discarding as much green as possible, bringing
 the water to the boil in the meantime. Two litres of flower heads weigh
 approximately 1 lb. Pour the boiling water over the flowers and leave
 them for two days in a closely covered bucket. Again, be careful not to
 exceed this time or a curious odour often invades and spoils what is a
 most pleasant table wine, properly made. Boil the mixture for 10 minutes
 with rough muslin over the sugar, stirring to dissolve it. When cool add
 the yeast nutrient, fruit juice and yeast. Put into fermentation jar and
 fit air-lock, and siphon off into clean bottles when the wine is
 cleared. It will be just right for drinking within 6 months or earlier
 if you are really impatient.
