I'm expanding my homesteading skills with canning.  Here's what I made using dandelion flowers I harvested yesterday:



DANDELION JELLY: Taraxacum officinale petals, spring water, sugar (100% white granulated in light yellow batch and 50/50 with brown sugar in darker batch), lemon juice, liquid pectin.

It looks like it came out great!  For those of us who have never tried it, does it have a distinctive flavor or is it similar to something else?

I'd like the recipe as well Smiley i would love to make my own honey substitute. Kjlutz, you really dont want to use the stems for anything, they're rather bad tasting. I've used the flowers for salads and a few other things as well, but this would be great for the summer.

A few of my friends are interested in the procedure as well so I'll write up a blog article and post here when it's done.
