What does vegan honey taste?

You know what? Before I made my first dandelion honey (or dandelion syrup) I had never tasted any vegan “honey” and was quite skeptical. The only taste I associated with dandelions was the bitter taste of the white juice from the stem. I hadn’t even thought about that you can use dandelions to make something as sweet as honey.

When I had made my first jar and tasted it for the first time, I was SO happy! The taste was so incredibly similar to honey and it looked like honey in both color and texture. A was a total success!

  • 100 g dandelion petals the yellow leaves from the flowers
  • 600 ml water

  6. Add in the sugar and if you want to add a bit mote taste of lemon to the honey, the juice from 0.5-1 lemon depending on how much acidity you want. If you just want a classic, sweet honey, you can skip the lemon juice.
  7. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for about 60 minutes, until the honey starts to thicken. Keep in mind that it gets quite a bit thicker / harder when it cools, so it should be quite runny.
