Dandelions are in full bloom right now. With all of the rain they are just lush and happy! We made a wonderful batch of dandelion honey last week by plucking the petals and just stirring the right in. It makes these lovely little glowing slivers of gold all through the honey. So pretty on fresh bread. We also made a huge batch of dandelion syrup. I tried a new method I read about , and instead of painstakingly picking off the petals and discarding all of the green, I made it with the whole flower. I was afraid it would be bitter... but it wasn't at all! It is so incredibly delicious and thick and pretty. Sure beats buying maple syrup at 40 bucks a litre. Hubby just went out to mow the lawn and I ran out yelling with a pot in my hand... to save the dandelions. Surely I am living up to the crazy neighbour lady notorious reputation. Ready to put another couple of litres of syrup by anyhow!
