Hoopèrs dandelion and burdock

Post by Mjr6313 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 5:59 pm

I'm a fan of foraging and make wine by the truck load with what I collect, does anyone know a rough recipe for the Hoopers drink I could make with foraged goods I reminds me of panda pops as a child also its just so refreshing.
Thank you

The only thing I've ever foraged for is rose hips.

There is a recipe for something using dandelion and burdock in Andy Hamilton's Booze for Free. I'll check tonight. I think it uses the root of both plants.

And no idea how it compares to the Hoopers one.

Just a heads up if you’ve never used dandelion root. I dug up some for an alcoholic ‘pop’ and it was a right chew on to clean the mud out of the roots. I ended up using a toothbrush, but it still didn’t seem truly clean of mud.
