Dandelion wine is probably the best tasting wine you can make at home!
Dandelions will be everywhere pretty soon. As a result, you will want to learn how to make dandelion wine and take advantage of the first blossoms of dandelions!
Dandelions are weeds that grow pretty much anywhere. For years I always thought of them as annoying weeds that just grew where ever they liked, ruining my lush green lawn.
Now that I am a prepper, I have changed my mind. You can make dandelion bread or tea with them. A like this post, make wine with them. They are a prepper’s best friend with many health benefits.
Check out our recipe below, and enjoy!
