    I might just try this and suggest my neighbour follows it up. There’s a potential storm cloud of dandelion seed heading my way someday soon and if some of it could be turned into syrup before seeding it would save me a lot of weeding! I might just drop the recipe through her letterbox…

    Holy Dandelion! That’s amazing! I’ve never heard of anything like this — and we get more dandelions here in Michigan than you can point point a weed digger at!
