I'm enjoying the " Herbal Ally Challenge " more and more each day. Each time I walk outside and see the bright and beautiful blossoms of Dandelion , I feel so Blessed to have her as my ally.
I haven't used my vinegar , other than tasting it until this week.
I've been gathering blossoms and leaves all week. I've fried some Dandelion blossoms for lunch , cooked some Dandelion greens and added dandelion leaves to my pimento cheese sandwich. I picked some newly emerging buds and have plans to pickle them and I've been using the vinegar in most of my dishes.
I topped my Dandelion greens with the vinegar and added the vinegar to my egg salad. I've been pleased with the results , so I'll be making more dandelion blossom vinegar , plan to make a qt or 2 to have on hand throughout the year. I still plan to make vinegar with the leaves also and I'm looking forward to trying those pickled buds.
