Dandelion Honey

Cook Time1 hr 30 mins


  • 4 cups dandelion petals
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 apple cored and chopped
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 cups sugar


  • Combine all ingredients except the sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes. Let the brew steep at least six hours, preferably overnight.
  • Pour brew through a cheesecloth or tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. I ended up with about 3 1/2 cups.
  • Combine the liquid with sugar and bring to a low simmer. Watch your honey, give it a stir occasionally and keep it to a very low simmer. Cook for one hour and let cool. Put into jars or whatever storage items you want. Enjoy on toast, in your tea, cereal, or by the spoonful!
