Dandelion Honey DIY

Let's make dandelion honey!

    Dandelion honey isn't honey made by bees, but rather it is really dandelion syrup made from the flowers and sugar. You're the bee converting flowers into sweet goodness. You can weed those pesky dandelions from your lawn and make a treat from the flowers.

    Dandelion honey is a good substitute for honey for vegans or anyone who may have an allergy to traditional bee's honey, with a surprisingly similar flavor. The consistency is thinner than most honey. It has a very similar appearance in color.

    If you have a lawn dotted with dandelions and you are sure there haven't been any chemicals applied, you can forage for the flowers. If spring has sprung but the bees aren't yet buzzing enough to make honey, this is a fun seasonal substitute.

    Dandelion honey is great on toast, muffins, pancakes, and biscuits. You can use it much as you would use honey in tea and beverages. The tender greens are also good for salads and are tasty cooked with garlic, too. If you find that you really enjoy this process and you have a lot of dandelions in your yard, you can also make dandelion wine and dandelion jelly.

Prep Time
·         Prep: 30 mins
·         Cook: 4 hrs
·         Total: 4 hrs 30 mins
·         Servings: 16 servings


  • 4 cups dandelion petals
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 lemon slices (1/4-inch)
  • 1/2 vanilla bean (split in half)
  • 2 1/2 ​cups granulated sugar​

How to

1.       Pick dandelion flowers during the daylight while in full bloom.

2.       Soak the flowers in cold water for five minutes to allow time for any insects to exit.

3.       Remove the petals, then measure the petals only. Discard the center of the flower and the stem.

4.       Place the petals in a heavy saucepan along with the water, lemon slices, and vanilla bean.

5.       Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer it for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let steep for 6 hours.

6.       Strain the dandelion tea through a cheesecloth and discard the solids.

7.       Place the dandelion tea in a heavy saucepan and bring it to a low boil.

8.       Gradually add sugar to the boiling liquid while stirring until the sugar is dissolved.

9.       Lower the heat and let it simmer uncovered until it reaches the desired syrupy thickness. This may take up to 4 hours.

Don't lose your Pintrest Account....

Have you ever received a warning from Pinterest?

Did you know that you could get into trouble for repinning something you thought was cute from an unknown source?

1.  Don’t repin a photo unless you know the person pinning got it from the original source.
It’s the worst when you repin something great and it goes to a spam site, or later you get a complaint notice from Pinterest.  That is why I usually repin from trusted friends who know how to pin the correct way. If I’m not sure, I will click through the pin to double-check and pin directly from the source.  There are some people who repin everything and never take the time to click through to see if the photo goes to spam or a copyright protected site.

2.  How do you know if a website owner allows their photos to be pinned?

  • Most bloggers love for you to pin their images, but a photographer, Etsy shop owner or artist might not. Even though you see a Pin It button, it will be harder to tell from now on if someone wants their photos pinned, because Pinterest just announced automatic pin it hover buttons over all photos on Chrome. They say more browsers are coming soon.
  • You can also look at a website’s terms of use.A website might have the no pin code on their site. When you try to pin the image, it won’t work. Don’t take a screen capture and pin it anyway. I’m sure many people do this, so it’s another reason why you should be careful of what you repin.
  • If you see a round-up of 100 full sized photos and a Pinterest button is embedded on each photo, the original artist might not have given the website owner permission to use that photo in their round-up. If you love the photo enough to pin it, be nice and click through to pin from the original source. Sometimes this might take you a few clicks to find the original. I have even had to Google the description of the photo to find the original source, as some roundups give no link or credit! See my blog post rant about this here.
  • If you are not sure of what to do, pin the photo to a private board.

3.  If you have employees pinning to your boards, give them specific instructions and be sure to check in on what they are doing often.
I have heard of people trusting an employee to pin to their boards and then getting kicked out of good group boards because the employee was not following the board’s rules.
Similar to Amazon’s rule regarding paid product reviews, Pinterest does not allow users to pay for pinners or for their users to get paid to pin products to their boards?

Pinterest says this:
A business can pay someone to help them put together a board that represents their brand. For example, it’s okay for a guest blogger to curate a board for a local boutique’s profile. We don’t allow that boutique to pay the blogger to pin products to her own boards. 
A person can be given commission by an approved affiliate network. For example, it’s okay for a blogger to get paid when someone purchases a product that blogger has pinned. However, we don’t allow the blogger to be paid just to Pin. 
4. Follow Pinterest’s guidelines.
I put a snippet of Pinterest guidelines above, but if you haven’t read all guidelines in a while, read them here.
