TIME FOR DANDELION SYRUP!

Everyone knows dandelions and how good they are for our health. Today there are thousands of them flowering on the meadows around our house. Living north, we had to wait a little longer…

After breakfast I took Maya for morning walk and I collected 500 dandelion flowers. Maya of course was very helpful…

I spread them out on  paper, so all the ants and other insects could walk away.

I boiled all flowers 15 min in 1 litre of water with 2 lemons. Later I drained off through a cheesecloth and boiled again 1 hour with 1 kilo of sugar.

In the sunny afternoon we had 4 jars of beautiful dandelion syrup!

    • Just as yours are coming into flower ours are going to seed; I must try this one day, it looks a fantastic golden colour. Gosias mum said that it is often used for coughs as well.
