How To: Dandelion Infused Honey

How To: Dandelion Infused Honey
This is a simple, delicious and beautiful way to use up some of the Dandelion’s growing in your yard.Important: Before picking any part of a Dandelions for consumption you want to make sure they are not growing in an area that has been sprayed or are close to any type of walk way or road. The best spot is your backyard (if you have a dog its best to choose a spot they don’t use as their bathroom), backroads and at least 100 meters from the road, or a friend or neighbors yard (ask permission first!)What You’ll Need:
a jar with a sealable lid
raw honey in a heat safe jar (about as much as the size of your sealable jar)
dandelion flowers
a pot (at least half the height of your honey jar)
a stainless steel chop stick/butter knife/spoon/fork
a small kitchen towel/wash cloth
over mitt
unbleached parchment paper
masking tape
fine mesh strainer (optional)


1. Begin by picking enough Dandelion Flowers (just the top part no stem) to fill your jar 3/4 full.
2. Give them each a little shake and then leave them outside while you prep your honey, to allow any bugs or insects to escape.
3. Fill the bottom of your pot with about an inch or two of water (depending on the size of your honey jar, you want the water to go about 1/4 of the way up the jar when you place in the saucepan).
4. Fold the kitchen towel to fit at the bottom of the pot with the water and on top of it, making sure the jar is stable (no lid on the jar!). You may need to get a smaller towel if the jar is not stable.
5. Begin to heat the water with the towel and jar of honey inside the pit over low-medium heat. Keep checking the temperature of the water with your fingers (carefully!!) to make sure it is not getting too hot. If it is too hot to touch, it is too hot for the honey. Lower heat if needed. Do not heat over 95 degrees F. This will cause the honey to begin to lose its benefits.
6. Once the honey begins to liquify turn off the heat and bring your jar of Dandelion Flowers inside.
7. Using oven mitts, remove your jar of honey from the pot and pour it over the Dandelion flowers to cover them by about 1/2 inch and leaving another 1/2 inch of space at the top of your jar.
8. Using your stainless steal utensil, mix around the flowers to make sure they are all coated in honey.
9. Place a square piece of parchment paper over the opening of the jar and place the lid on top, sealing it closed.
10. Using the masking tape and sharpie label your jar “Dandelion Infused Honey *Today’s Date*” and write an intention (why are you making this honey? what are you calling in? how can you ask these flowers to support you?”
11. Store in a dry, dark place for 4 weeks. Every couple of days, roll the jar in your hands to mix the flowers and honey.
12. on the fourth week, you can either scoop out the flowers a clean stainless steel spoon or you can strain the honey by reheating the infused honey with the same method used above (without the lid and parchment paper on
)and pouring it through a fine mesh strainer.Label your infused honey and store in a cool dark place and use any way you would use honey!
