This was one of the things I have done this past month while I was MFB (missing from blogging)
Seeing how I was loaded with dandelions in my yard I figured I ought to find a way to use them beside eating the leaves.
I looked for recipes and came across this one, thought it would be a tasty one.
It said to pick 2 quarts of flowers but I came up a little short
by a couple of cups but I went ahead with the recipe as thou I did have enough. I did make my tea different from how this recipe said. I steeped my clean flower petals in 4 cups of boiled water in a glass jar for overnight and then strained it through a coffee filter.
Also I did not have the Lavender Sugar With Vanilla but I did have sugar that had been stored with a vanilla bean in the container with it. So I figured that was a close substitute.
This was the first time I have made Dandelion jelly and it will be one I will try to make every spring. I like the light, honey like sweetness of this jelly.
You can not tell by my photos but it is also the color of light honey, which I was suprised by cause the tea was a green color and I was affraid that would be the color of the jelly but thank goodness it changed durning the cooking process.
Very pretty and tasty
