16 June 2022 Dandelion


There is a bountiful crop of dandelions this year. I was weed whacking the flowers when I got an epiphany and looked up on the internet if dandelions have any nutritional value. To my surprise a dandelion plant is completely eatable. I decided to concentrate only on the flowers. I picked about four pound of flowers and made five liters of pressure canned juice.

Method: Cook until soft after adding about 4 liters of water, beat into a slurry with hand blender, strain through a 2mm mesh, put sludge through a Champion Juicer to extract most nutrients. Put drinkable produce in five one liter jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage at room temperature.

Experiment at this stage.
