Remember my goals for this year? So far, I've been achieving all of them! Yay! Goal #4 was to try more dandelion recipes, and goal #3 was to make more jam. I killed two birds with one stone with my latest project. After buying the Boreal Herbal book, I decided to try out some of those recipes inside. I chose the Dandelion Petal Jelly and the Dandelion Petal Syrup.
After picking your dandelion flowers, you have to pluck all the petals out. Each recipe required 4 cups of petals- this took awhile! But when you taste the final product, it is worth it.
And I can hardly wait until the fireweed is in bloom!
