This isn’t going well. I took the dandelion flower heads out of the freezer bag after they had thawed out. They smelled stinky. I tried to pull the yellow stuff away from the green ends but the bud was squishy and impossible to deal with. The flower petals that are normally as bright and beautiful as the sun, were brownish and dead-looking. I couldn’t see this making a pretty yellow jelly.
I will have to wait until the day that they spread themselves like butter on my lawn again. The yellow petals will have to be pulled from the head before I put it into the freezer…better yet…the color would be better if I jellied them on the spot. So much for doing it in a slack winter moment. Who did I get that idea from? We need to talk.
