Dandelion Flower Vinegar

The dandelions are all bright and beautiful at the moment. Perfect, I thought for making a dandelion flower vinegar. 

Ingredients

  • Dandelion flower heads
  • Cider vinegar
  • Jam jar with rubber sealed lid

And so jar in hand, I walked out down the lane from my house and gathered as many dandelion flower heads as I could fit comfortably into the jar.

I took them back to my house, and then poured 10 year old cider vinegar over them until they were submerged, then capped them and placed them in a shady place.

Really you should leave them for about 6 weeks, but I was already tucking into the vinegar within about 5 days. I like to taste the changes as the vinegar matures.

Makes: 1 jam jar
