Dandelion Wine

We have all heard of dandelion wine.  I wanted to make some and didn't know how.  I read some of the on-line stuff and was surprised by recipes that seemed to call for a lot of added flavors (other fruit juices).  I was also surprised to hear some one say 'wash them first' -- what a terrible waste!

 Here is my effort to remain a purist below. Note: one thing I did discover, 'pure' dandelion wine has a bouquet of weeds and isn't a big hit.  After it clears I highly recommend sweetening it up with sugar to taste.
