  • 300 dandelion flowers
  • 750 g of sugar
  • 1 l apa
  • 1 lemon

Servings: 2

Preparation time: over 120 minutes

RECIPE PREPARATION Honey from dandelion flowers:

Gently wash the dandelion flowers in cold water. We put water to boil and when it boils we also put the flowers. Let it boil for 2-3 minutes, turn off the heat and let it penetrate overnight. The next day, we strain the syrup and throw the dandelions. Bring the syrup to a boil and after boiling add 750 g of sugar. Let it boil until it thickens, about 1 hour and a half. At the very end, add the finely chopped lemon peel and the lemon juice. (I put a few slices of lemon) If it is not boiled enough, the honey will spoil, so it will be better boiled. Although if it is too boiled, it will become sugary, but if we put it in hot water, or for 1-2 minutes, the microwave oven will recover. Pour into sterilized jars, let cool and store in the refrigerator.

Cold dandelion syrup with honey

For a superior quality, prepare a dandelion syrup with bee honey. The best cold dandelion syrup is prepared by macerating the flowers or petals directly in honey. You can also add lemon juice. Leave the petals to soak in honey for several days to extract the active substances, then strain the syrup obtained. Store in cool, dark, well-ventilated places.

See in the next video how we prepared cold dandelion syrup with bee honey and dandelion liqueur with lemon and ginger!

If you want to get an even more dandelion syrup, add dandelion leaves along with dandelion flowers. Wash nettle leaves well in several waters and dry with a kitchen towel. Finely chop, mix with washed and dried dandelion petals and weigh. To 500 g of dandelion (dandelion + nettle) add 500 g of honey plus juice of 2-3 lemons. Leave to soak for 14-18 days.

Mix 2-3 times a day with a wooden spoon. After maceration, filter and store the syrup in small bottles in the refrigerator.

Dandelion syrup with bee honey is used both in culinary preparations, but also to alleviate certain diseases.
