Yes, Jan. It is James Mason.

Thanks, Beetroot.
I was told as a kid that my grandmother made superb dandylion wine, but I was never allowed to try it. She always picked her dandylions on St. Geroge's day.
Which, apparently, was the tradition.
Her parsnip wine was also prety high octane as well, I believe.

maybe there should be an AA thread - 'Alcohol from Anything'

I dabbled in home made wine myself some years ago and the best one I ever made was rose petal. I picked the petals in the summer to start the process and then stored the bottled away for Xmas. We opened the first bottle on Xmas day and it was amazing. I don't know how or why, but it turned out semi-sparkling. Definitely more by accident than design. If I only had the space I would go back into production tomorrow, rather that pay 4.99 for a bottle of imported wine that costs half a Euro to produce!

A is for APPLE. And we've had a thread for making alcohol from apples for years, haven't we?

...if you press it, they will come.

B is for BEETROOT and someone should make me some wine.

If we did both, it might make a colourful cocktail.

Mmmm, beetroot wine has to be the way forward, all the health giving benefits of beetroot in a glass of dark red wine, perfect..

If you want a good, dark red, homemade wine, what's wrong with the good old-fashioned elderberry? It costs nothing and, if done properly, will produce a wine as good as anything you can buy off the shelf.
(It's a darn good hook bait for roach as well!!!!)

Dandelion come from the French "Dents de Lion" - Lions' teeth. The nickname in French is "Pissenlit", same as English. Thought you'd like to know!
