  • 3 Liters or Quarts Daisy Blossoms
  • 3 Liters or Quarts Red Clover Blossoms
  • 6 Liters or Quarts boiling water
  • 1.5 Kg or 3 1/4 lbs honey
  • 500g or 1 lb chopped dates (can use raisins or sultanas)
  • 500g or 1 lb whole wheat kernels
  • 1 Tbsp each dried orange and lemon peel (can use zest and juice of 2 oranges and 2 lemons if available)
  • 6 cardamom pods and
  • 6 cloves (can be omitted or substituted for favorite spices/herbs, cinnamon, mint, vanilla, anise, lavender, etc)
Step 2
  • 1 package of yeast


Step 1

Pick your daisy’s you can use any edible daisy such as (Ox-Eye Daisy Chrysanthemum leucanthemum, or English Daisy Bellis perennis ). Next the red clovers you want the flowers not stems or leaves of the (Trifolium pratense).

Always be absolutely sure of plant identification before collecting or consuming any wild plant. I use Petersons Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants to aid identification.

Wash blossoms by pouring boiling water over blossoms, and let stand 24 hours this should remove the bugs. Filter out blossoms and add to carboy along with the remaining ingredients (except yeast) .

Step 2
  • yeast

Prepare a 1L yeast starter by stirring the yeast into the water then let mixture stand in cup for 15 minutes.

Make sure it is bubbling and then you will add it to your mead.

Add in your yeast nutrient.

After 24-48 hours it should start bubbling.

Fermentation Through Bottling Your Daisy Mead Recipe

Make sure your primary has about a gallon of water in it otherwise fill it now.

Just be careful that your carboy is around a third empty leaving space for frothing and foaming.

Put on your air lock and let it ferment.

Rack the mead off the fruit to your secondary carboy after 6-7 days when the frothing has slowed down.

Congratulations, You Have Completed Making this Awesome Daisy Mead!

You now need a bottle and a label which are cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly, if you put it into a cheap bottle, people will make fun of you. BUT, if it looks good, people will rave about it!
