We made a batch of dandelion syrup the other day. We headed out to pick some blossoms on a South-facing slope- the first dandelions to appear. Kesten brought along his bucket to help me pick and even Cedar caught on to the idea and picked several flowers herself (which she promptly ate). Back at home we prepared the syrup using the recipe in the Boreal Herbal. We had so many dandelions left over, that I plucked all of the petals and set them out to dry on a couple of cookie sheets. We can use them for dandelion mustard or for Cedar's dandelion cake (her first birthday is just over a week away!).
