    Quote:May I ask where you got your recipe for the white clover honey? It sounds very interesting. No one in the house has ever heard of it. I'm the holistic/organic nerd here, so if there's something I can make from the garden or yard that's good to eat, I'm interested!

    Ooooh... go into the recipe cooking forum and click on the "What are you canning?" thread! Kim_NC has the recipe, I got it from here... but its a basic flower jelly recipe!

    2 cups (I used 2 1/2 cups) clover or any other flower, 2 cups boiling water and let seep to become a tea for several hours. Over night is best.
    Then bring to a boil, add pectin and continue to bowl while adding 4 cups of sugar. I think the liquid pectin works best.

    Then water bath 10 minutes!

    Well I am really new to the BYC....we are actually researching what we need to do to get into it! But as I am surfing around the forum I see the word ETSY and I have to check it out! A chicken Team sounds like fun! My link is in my signature, I sell on Ebay and reworking my website. Melting glass is my first passion then all the other addictioins fall in line, looks like chickens will be in the mix with gardening, raising tilapia, organic gardening and being green!

    Hello to one and all!

    Thank you! I'll be sure to check out the canning thread since preserving our garden is another thing that would be handy to learn about [​IMG]
    This recipe sure beats the ones I found online, which called for 10 CUPS OF SUGAR. That'll clean out our sugar container!

    So I know we've got wild roses, white and red clover (which red clover is very beneficial for us - especially women. I was so surprised when I researched it!). But I'm trying to think of some other things around here that might taste good (and hopefully be good for you) in these jellies. I know dandelions are great for you, but they're also great for being bitter [​IMG] Funny how the weeds we try to keep out of our yards, turn out to be the best for us. I've always thought clover was pretty, but of course the parents would love a yard of that perfect Rebel grass [​IMG] I think I found good reason to keep the clover around [​IMG]

    Well for dandolions to get rid of the bitter only cut and keep the most yellow part of the flower and I wrap it in a wet paper towel (or cheese cloth works) and dunk it in the boiled water like tea! It gets the bitter out!
