Mandarin Orange Mead

How We Made a Mandarin Orange Mead. Why mandarins? I like them, that’s why! Also, they are much easier to work with than regular oranges and they sell them in these mesh bags that hold a bunch. So convenient. It’s like they meant for us to make a mandarin mead with them.

The mandarin orange, also known as mandarin or mandarine, is smaller and more oblate in shape than the common orange. Mandarins taste is sweeter and stronger than the common orange as well. This is why we went this route for our Mead.
