~ Red Clover Syrup ~

I've been wanting to make red clover syrup for awhile now , so yesterday I got busy. I found the recipe at Prodigal Gardens , there are some great herbal recipes at her website. I made my red clover infusion one day last week and had it in the refrigerator , so I put it in the pot , added the sugar and brought it to a boil , adjusted the heat and let it cook down . I had it boiled down to the perfect consistency when the phone rung. I turned the heat off while I was talking to my sister and left it sitting on the stove. When I came back later to pour it into a jar , it was like a thick caramel candy instead of syrup. Guess , I'm going to try another batch later this week , not sure what I'll use that thick gooey stuff for , any ideas ? I might try to make fly tape for the goat and chicken house , think it would work (LOL) ?

~ Happy Herbal Blessings ~

Why is it that the phone always rings with someone you want to talk to at the worst times? My dad swears I just always know when he's getting in the shower.

I like your flypaper idea.
Let us know if you tried it
and if it worked. lol!

Maybe top some icecream
with it. lol!

I love Prodigal Gardens
recipes. I made Cattail
Pancakes on day from info
off that site.

I made a popcicle yesterday.
I have it in draft. Maybe I'll
take it out. I added a link
to Chamomile Popcicles I got
from one of your links.

That is a great idea for using
the baked record for a 50's
party, JoyceAnn!!

Your Welcome for the links!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Speaking of Candy...could you reheat it a little and roll it out onto wax paper to make some hard candy balls or drops with? I'd bet it would be really good! Maybe you've come up with a way to make it into lozenges?! I'd give it a whirl and perhaps it'd be good on ice cream too?

Just a thought, lol!
Sorry it didn't turn out the way you needed it to.

Many Blessings!

add a bit of water to your gooey syrup; reheat, mix well and soon it will be syrup again.

I'd like to have your recipe if you will share.
