It’s so funny how dandelion flowers are, for anyone on a quest for the perfect grassy yard, your worst enemy — but for our family we make a happy dance when we find because we make dandelion syrup with them.

Here is our recipe:

1 ½ cups dandelion flowers, no stemsmaskrossirap
1 cup sugar
3 cups water
Grated peel from one small lemon

1. Remove the petals from the sepal. Be sure not to allow any green into the petals, as it will add bitterness to the syrup.

2. Place the petals into a medium pot and cover with 3 cups water and bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat, cover and let sit overnight.

3. Strain dandelion water into a bowl, pressing on the flowers with the back of a spoon to extract all the liquid.

4. Return water to pot and add sugar, lemon peel and simmer over low heat until thickened.

5. Allow to cool, and pour into a clean jar or bottle. Store covered in refrigerator.
