Dandelion syrup: a natural, simple and easy recipe


For making the best quality dandelion syrup, it is very important when and from what areas the flowers are gathered. They should be picked in the morning from unpolluted places, from hills and fields in the countryside or from organic gardens. Choose the flowers with the most open and healthy flowers.

Weigh the flowers, rinse well in several bowls of cold water, drain and cook in a liter of water. Simmer on low heat for 2-3 minutes after the water has reached the boiling point. After turning off the heat, cover the pot with a lid and leave the flowers to infuse for 8 hours.

When time is up, drain the flowers through a clean gauze. Press them well into the gauze so they can let out all their sap. Strain the liquid through a fine sieve once more and bring to the boil, adding the sugar and lemon juice.

Leave the dandelion flower syrup to simmer on a low heat until it reaches the consistency of jam syrup.

To test the consistency, put a few drops of syrup on a cold plate. If they look like firm little pearls, the syrup is ready. Pour the delicious hot dandelion syrup into sterilized jars or bottles. It’s best to use jars because this way the syrup will become even thicker after cooling and it can be scooped out with a spoon.
