Dandelions do you love them or hate them?  You can spend a lot of money trying to eliminate them from growing in your lawn, while other people think they are beautiful.  Myself I love dandelions!  I don’t see them as a pest at all rather a beautiful and helpful herb.

Do you know that you can make a lovely jelly from dandelion flowers?  Yes really you can and it’s so easy to make dandelion jelly to!  This jelly has become a family favourite of ours because it tastes just like honey with just a hint of lemon.  We use it on toast, biscuits, and even in tea as a replacement for honey sometimes.

  • This looks delicious! Now want to go on a hunt for dandelions to make this as I just realized it is the one flower (or weed) that we don't have in our yard. Thanks for posting it on the #sustainablesunday link up!
  • I have never heard of Dandelion Jelly, and I can't wait to try it! I'm fascinated by this and since it tastes like honey, I've got to use this recipe. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! #SustainableSundays http://passportcouture.com
  • This is so neat! I feel like all of our dandelions are mostly gone this year, but next year I'm going to go nuts and have the kids collect them all. Thanks for linking up to #SustainableSundays!

    I'm in the UK and have never heard of a water-bath canner. Can this be made by boiling the tea mixture for a certain amount of time instead?
    • Kim
      The water bath canner is used to boil the jars after they've been filled with the jelly. You can use any pot that is deep enough so that the water covers the jars. Oh, and make sure to put something on the bottom of the pot so the jars don't touch the bottom and brake. You can use a wooden cutting board, or even twist tie some jar rings together to make a trivet. Does that help?
  • I have never made dandelion jelly, but I LOVE dandelion tea. This is the first time I have seen it mentioned online. You'd think everybody would try it.
