For some dandelions represents weeds but for my family it means dandelion syrup. Dandelion syrup can be used in many ways: on top of pancakes or plain yogurt, anywhere you use a sweetener, really … you name it. It has a very nice flower-like flavor and is our favorite topping for pancakes. Here is a recipe:

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

Directions:

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.

End of the year teachers gifts, wrapped zero waste style with fabrics which looks so much prettier than wrapping paper if you ask me.

Nothing says summer like perfectly sweet and homegrown strawberries. And I even got to sneak a few before the kids found them 😁
