Dandelion Syrup

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

Spring is here in Atlanta. The dogwoods are exploding with blooms, the temps are rising and my winter clothes are all put away.  What to do when your lawn is littered with a zillion yellow dandelion flowers?  Make dandelion syrup, of course!

Honestly, this project started as a dare.  Crystal thought this would be a great use for the umpteen flowers in my yard.  You call them weeds, I call them flowers. The recipe takes two cups of petals. That’s about 365 dandelions. So out I went into the yard and faced the challenge.  Then I clipped the petals of all the flowers.  Crystal found a recipe online (which prompted all of this) and off I went.
