Herbal Ally Challenge # 9 ~ Vinegar Review


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. If you're interested in the recipes for the Dandelion greens or the Fried Dandelion Blossoms , here are the links for recipes.

Yummy! The pickled buds sounds like something I'd really like to know how to do. I enjoy the buds soaked in olive with minced garlic.

I check out the other recipes because I always enjoy trying new ones.

I've used and tasted my dandelion vinegar. I think I would like to make a blossom one also.

I need to get a bottle for my nettle vinegar.
