Time to make azalea wine in South Korea

Every year at this time, traditional winemakers in South Korea begin to make a special alcohol using jindallae, the South Korean name for the azalea flower. People get up early to pick petals, and after being cleaned and dried, the flowers are fermented with sticky rice. The traditional winemaking process will usually take 100 days. Jindallae wine, which contains around 18 percent alcohol, has a flowery aroma. For the farmers, sales of the wine bring them income of nearly 800 US dollars a month.
