Dandelion Wine and Fry

Ever wanna learn how to make wine? I'm sure you've heard about dandelion wine. Let's make some! I'll need each person to bring 1-2 quarts of dandelion flower heads and an empty wine bottle (1.75 ltrs). Together we will go through the processes of making wine AND we will make some dandelion fritters. Each participant will get to go home with a bottle of wine and instructions on fermentation and filtration. We will be sanitizing the bottles on site, but make sure they are thoroughly rinsed.

$20 contribution per person

2 barter passes are available, contact me for more detail

    This class was sooo cool! My dandelion wine is still cooking away! I keep an eye on it every few days. I am now making a strawberry vinegar and a strawberry wine because of the tips given in the class! My son is way hip for the strawberry vinegar for a salad dressing! It hasnt formed the mother yet but any day now....

      Hi! How is the wine and vinegar doing? Have you given it a taste? The dandelion wine will likely need some more sugar, I'm thinking.

    So we have exactly 0 dandelions. I thought you said they sell them at Whole Foods, so we didn't harvest any. They don't, so we don't.

    I am very interested and so is my friend. But lately, I have not seen much dandelion around and am concerned about being able to harvest that amount. Any suggestions?

      By now there isn't much around. We should still have enough material to go around.

    I need at least 9 more people to sign up for this by the end of the month. If not I'll have to cancel it.

    Is there a way to collect dandelions over a period of time and save them somehow? Like can they be kept in the freezer? I'm not sure I'd be able to collect a large amount all in one go and have it be right before this event.

      Sure can. Collect them, get all the green off of them, that's the real bitter part, and put them in a ziplock to freeze. Collect them from an area you trust and do not wash or rinse them off.
