Dandelion Vinegar


dandelionsSpring is time for dandelions and liver support!  If your yard is organic (or you know of one that is), and you see dandelions blooming, pluck those little flower heads!

The yellow flowers are high in lecithin and support liver health.

I feel like a honeybee as I buzz over my yard and collect the dandelion flowers.

🙂

Once you’ve got a bunch, fill a glass mason jar (that has a lid) with the flowers.  Really pack them in there.

dandelions and acvPour Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) over the top until all the flowers are covered.

Cover with a lid (ideally a plastic lid since the vinegar will eat a metal lid … or put a layer of saran between the liquid and the metal lid).

Let this nectar sit on your counter (out of direct light) for about 6 weeks, and give it a shake once a day.

After 6 weeks, strain the vinegar and compost the dandelions (or leave them in there for the visual effect).

Use this Dandelion Vinegar anywhere you would eat ACV, for example:

  • A quick shot glass of Dandelion ACV chased by water in the morning will put some zing in your step and keep your liver smiling
  • Mixed with some olive oil and Fiesta Mole it makes a tasty salad dressing
