Joyce, you have to keep us updated on the dandelion wine - wish I could send you some of mine :-).... Newstead from Freedom Gardens!
I love dandelions. They grow so abundantly here - sometimes the fields are completely covered with them. So far we've only had a very few in some of the yards - none in our yard so far - we had only a few last year - hope they reseeded themselves liberally.
Hi Robin , Thanks for dropping by , I will keep you updated about the dandelion wine. This will be my first attempt at making it and it will probably take awhile to gather a gallon of blooms , I may have gathered 1/4 yesterday. I froze those and will keep picking daily.Hi JoAnn , I think dandelions are beautiful and they have so many healing properties. It's sad that so many people just consider it a weed. I plan to make dandelion jelly soon.~ Spring Blessings ~ JoyceAnn
I too am collecting dandelions to make dandelion wine! =) We are also picking and eating the greens before these turn bitter. *bleck*Happy hunting!
Annette , I just cooked a batch of dandelions and they were delicious in the recipe I used. I'll be harvesting and freezing as many as I can.~ Blessings ~ JoyceAnn
Oh if only I weren't allergic to dandelions...theres so many uses for them. Good job!
Hi Joyce Ann,Love the pretty Dandelion blooms!;o) Was your blooms BIG this yr.? Ours are. Happy Easter!Blessins',Lib
Oh, I was reading the best time of the day to pick flowers was the hottest time of the day.Enjoy your drinks!Wow, I'd like the DandilionJelly recipe. I didn't knowyou could make Dandilion Jelly.Do you use it on crackers too?God Bless You and Yours!!!
Flassie , I've never made dandelion jelly before. I think Lib made it just like violet jelly , except she used dandelion blooms , you need to remove all the green part from the dandelions , use petals only.Lib has a comment on this page , click on her name and it will take you to her blog. Her post about making dandelion jelly is very good ~ check it out~ Blessings ~ JoyceAnn
What recipe do you use for your dandelion wine?
