SOME LOVE IT - OTHERS HATE IT


Blog Posted:3/24/2014 1:50:00 PM



                                   - Sun in my hand
                                   - Smiles with joy
                        - I picked my first dandelion today
                                      - It is spring




They pop up everywhere - dandelion with its large leaf rosettes, yellow flowers and round seeds that kids like to blow outwards, but gardeners do not like at all ... but a sure sign of spring.


Flowers Drink dandelion - recipe

Ingredients
3 liters of dandelion flowers, preferably without the green
4 liters of water, 3 lemons, sliced, 1.75 kg sugar

Preparation
The water boiled with flowers. Let it soak in cool place for 12 hours. Add the sugar and lemon slices. Stir in the juice once in a while. Let it sit covered in a cool place for 2-3 weeks. Remove any foam. Sift and pour over the clean bottles. Keep cool or freeze. Can be diluted with water or sparkling water.



- Welcome Spring .....   I share it with you

Is that what they refer to as dandelion wine?? Always was curious how it tasted. Why does it have to sit so very long in a cool place?

- Dandelion wine has a completely different recipe - This drink is a drink with sweet / bitter taste - should be drunk cold - If you make a lot or store it long can you freeze it. - Thanks for the nice visit Andrea. - / / Anne-Lise :)
