 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      Litres        Dandelions
    1 1/2  Lb            Sugar
    2                    Lemons
    1                    Orange
  500      Grams         Raisins -- <<OR>>
  280      Mls           Raisin Concentrate
    1      Teaspoon      Grape Tanin
    1      Gallon        Water
                         Yeast and nutrient
 
 
 The flowers must be freshly gathered first, picked off their stalks, and
 put into a polythene bucket. You do not need to pull off the petals, you
 must use the whole head. Bring the water to the boil, pour over the
 dandelions and leave for two days, stirring each day. Keep the bucket
 closely covered. On the third day, turn all into a boiler, add the sugar
 and the rinds only of the lemons and orange. Boil for one hour. Return
 to the bucket, and add the juice and pulp of the lemons and orange.
 Allow to stand until cool, then add the wine yeast and the tanin, and
 the yeast nutrient. Let it remain closely covered for three days in a
 warm place, then strain into fermenting bottles and add the concentrate.
 Fit the air locks. Leave until fermentation ceases and rack and top up
 when clear. This wine, is best left for 6 months or even longer.
