Step 1

How do you make dandelion jam? Prepare all the necessary ingredients. First, dandelion flowers must be properly collected. This should be done in dry, sunny weather, in the middle of the day.

Step 3

But these half-closed ones will not work. It’s all about the amount of pollen. In an open dandelion, it is ripe, and in a closed one – either overripe, or vice versa – not ripe.

Step 4

The specified amount of ingredients is enough to prepare one jar with a volume of 650 g. This time I prepared a double rate per liter of water.

Step 5

There are several options for cooking dandelion jam. The stems of dandelions contain milky juice, which is bitter. To get rid of this bitterness, dandelions are soaked for 24 hours in most recipes. I offer you an option without soaking. We will only use flower petals without stems and sepals. To do this, use scissors to cut off the yellow part of the dandelion.

Step 6

This is what the cut petals of 200 dandelions look like. To preserve the maximum pollen and, accordingly, the healing properties of dandelion, we will not even wash our future jam. Therefore, you need to collect flowers in a clean place (ideally outside the city, away from highways). Immediately fill the cut dandelion petals with water and put on fire.

Step 7

After boiling, add a very important ingredient – citric acid. It will fix the beautiful yellow color of the jam and prevent sugar from crystallizing.

Step 8

You need to boil dandelions for 30 minutes, but most importantly – over low heat. Then turn off the heat and let the broth brew for an hour. Already at this stage you will feel a very pleasant aroma of honey.

Step 9

Strain the broth through a double layer of gauze and squeeze the flowers well. Add the sugar and put the jam back on the fire. First you need to constantly stir the dandelion jam with a spoon so that the sugar does not burn to the bottom of the pan. When it is completely dissolved, the jam can no longer be interfered. Cook it for about 30 minutes. The longer the jam is boiled, the thicker it will be.

Step 10

Rinse the jars in running water with baking soda, wet, put them in a cold oven upside down. Turn on the oven at 150 ° C and sterilize after reaching the temperature of the jar with a volume of 0.5 liters – 10 minutes, 1 liter – 15 minutes. Ready dandelion jam at home hot pour into jars and close the lids. After cooling, the dandelion jam will thicken, the foam will settle and it will look like bee honey.
