daisy wine


4 quarts of small field daisy blossoms
1 gallon boiling water
2 lemons
2 oranges
2 lbs. brown sugar
1/2 lb. raisins
1 oz yeast


1. Put the daisies in a bowl and cover with the boiling water. Stand until next day, then squeeze the daisies out.
2. Then boil gently the liquid, sliced lemons, oranges and sugar together for 20 minutes. Allow to cool to lukewarm.
3. Add the chopped raisins and stir the yeast in (it should be first dissolved in a little warm water). Leave to ferment 14 days.
4. Then skim, strain and bottle.
