For dandelion syrup you need about 250 dandelion tops (give or take a few),1 lemon, 4 C water, and 2 pounds of sugar (I love organic cane sugar for this).
The Little Ladies could eat it by the spoonfuls! It has a very earthy sweet taste.
Araina licked her spoon clean. Tomorrow we will put the dandelion syrup on homemade waffles for breakfast.
You could follow this same recipe but replace the dandelions with violets or mint or any other herb you have handy. Ohhhh, rose petal syrup would be tasty too. For more dandelion fun visit dandelion octopus, beautiful pollinators, and dandelion prints.
