First, you pick the dandelions.
Then you wash them really, really well (especially if you have a dog.... eeeuuuwww!)
Then you pour boiling water over them and let them sit for a couple of days
Then you add some fruit and sugar and spices
And boil it for an hour
Then you strain it, let it cool, add the yeast, and let it sit overnight (the Bag Lady forgot to take a picture of that, but it was boring anyway - all it was doing was sitting there, bubbling occasionally like a miniature lava pool)
Then you pour it into bottles. Poke a few holes in some balloons, fit them on top of the bottles (easier said than done!) and watch the balloons rise up
Then you put them in a dark place for three weeks. And hope they don't explode.
Oh, and here is the (aforementioned dog) Princess, relaxing after a hard day helping the Bag Lady in the yard. (Chasing sticks and barking at birds and squirrels is exhausting!)
Have a great weekend!
