Wanda’s Magical Dandelion Wine.

This dandelion wine recipe has been in my family for over 100 years. It’s easy to make, refreshing and dandelions are know to contain health benefits.

The leaves and roots of the plant were medicinally used as a tonic for removing toxins from bloodstream, as they serve as a mild diuretic to improve the digestive system functioning.

The name "dandelion" derives from the French for "lion's tooth." The flower also has been called priest's-crown, fortune-teller, swine-snout and puffball, among other things, according to the book "The History and Folklore of North American Wildflowers"

- Timothy Coffey.
