Dandelion Wine Recipe
Place dandelion flowers in a large heatproof container and pour 6 cups boiling water over top. Cover and let steep at least 4 hours (up to 24 hours). Pour resulting tea through a fine-mesh strainer into a large pot or saucepan, pressing the petals to extract as much flavor as possible. Discard flowers and bring tea to a boil.
Place sugar in a heatproof 1-gallon jar. Pour boiling tea into jar and stir to dissolve. Add lemon and orange. Cover jar and let stand for 2 weeks at room temperature, shaking every couple of days. In a clean container, pour wine through a fine-mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter. Serve, or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
