Instructions
  1. Start by checking your dandelions to make sure no little bugs are still among the petals. Gently tap them in order for any insect to know it’s time to leave! If you want, quickly drop them in water to remove dust or other particles, knowing that this will also remove quite some pollen.
  2. Put your freshly picked dandelions, dry rose buds and freshly squeezed lemon juice in a big pot, and pour the water. Put on the lid and let boil gently for 45-60 minutes.
  3. Strain the flowers and apples and save the precious flower-infused liquid that’s left in the pot. Add the brown sugar, stir gently, put again on the stove, and let it simmer on low without the lid for a couple of hours until it’s reduced in half. Check every hour and try not to stir too much.
  4. After a couple of hours, check the consistency: pour some of the syrup in a bowl, and it should coat the bottom of the bowl without being too thick (see picture). That’s when you want to turn off the heat and let it cool down. Don’t worry if it seems too runny or too thin, it will thicken tenfold once at room temperature.
  5. In the meantime you might want to sterilize your jars by simply plunging them into a little pot of boiling water (including the lids). Once dry, pour your Vegan Honey into the small containers and the waiting game begins: the longer you wait (as in, months!) the thicker your Honey will be.
  6. Don’t close the lids on the jars just yet! Cover with gauze so that more liquid can evaporate and the honey will be reduced and get thicker even faster. Once ready, it will last for over 1 year :-)
