Ingredients

  • 500 g dandelion flowers ((17.5 oz))
  • 1 l water ((4 cups))
  • 1 lemon organic, halved
  • 750 g sugar ((26.5 oz))

Instructions

  • Collect dandelion flowers on a sunny day and wash them well.
  • Put the flowers together with 1 liter of water and the lemon in a large pot and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Then turn off the heat, remove the pot from the stove and leave to infuse, covered, for about 12 hours.
  • Pour everything through a sieve, pour juice back into the pan.
  • Add sugar and simmer on low heat for about 1 hour. Stir occasionally.
  • after 1 hour, put 2-3 spoonfuls of the honey in a jar and let cool briefly. If the honey is too runny, you can continue to boil the honey until the desired consistency is reached. If it is too hard, add a little water and stir well.
  • Pour honey while still hot into sterilized glass jars and close immediately.
  • Store honey in a cool and dark place. It should keep for about 6-12 months.
