Making a jar of dandelion jelly is a great way to celebrate spring. The jelly will become a family favorite in no time. It tastes like honey with a little hint of lemon. Use it on biscuits, toast, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or wherever you would typically use honey.
– Pick a couple of handfuls of dandelions and wash/dry. – Remove the yellow petals (avoid green-colored petals as those can be bitter). – Make your favorite cupcake recipe while stirring the yellow petals into the batter.
You can use the dandelion’s lion-shaped leaves to make a salad! Best picked when young. Otherwise, the green can be bitter.
