Pineapple and Dandelion Wine
Wine is my favorite fruit, and pineapple is a close second. Use those pesky dandelions in an excellent way.
- 1 pineapple
- 12 cups yellow dandelion flowers
- 14 cups water
- 2 lemons
- 4 pounds of sugar
- 1 or 2 packets of yeast

Cost Budget Friendly
Pour boiling water over dandelion flowers. Let sit for 5 days, strain.
Juice and zest the lemons.
Cut the top off the pineapple and cut into small chunks. Save the juice.
Combine 2 pounds of sugar, dandelion water, pineapple chunks, lemon juice and zest, and water. Cover and let sit for 12 hours.
Add yeast and the other 2 pounds of sugar. Stir.
Stir daily until it's done fermenting, then strain and bottle.
Let it age until you see dandelions again next year.
