Dandelion Infused Oil

Dandelion Infused Oil

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Dried Dandelion Flowers (just the dried heads, more greens)
  • 1 Pint Sized Mason Jar
  • 1 pint Olive Oil (You will not use quite the full pint amount as you're are covering the dandelion flowers.)

Note

You can also speed up the infusing process by placing your jar in a slowcooker. In your slowercooker, place a washcloth on the bottom, then your jar on top of that. Add water until the water covers about half way up the jar. Turn the setting to warm. Let infuse for 6-8 hours.

 

 

Directions

Step 1
Add dried flowers to the glass jar.
Step 2
Pour the olive oil over the flowers. Leaving 1 inch of headspace in the jar.
Step 3
Use a butter knife to stir and remove air bubbles.
Step 4
Cap your jar and store in a cool dark place out of direct sunlight.
Step 5
Shake jar once a day for 4-6 weeks.

About Shannon @VillageGirlBlog

With my Husband, we raise our two sons and a nephew, three dogs, a cat, four chickens and a large garden on my just under an acre lot in a small village in Southeast Michigan. I am passionate about real food, and eating as local as we can without giving up olive oil, coffee, you know the necessities. Herb gardens and backyard chickens, reading, writing, photography are my other passions. I believe that things will work out eventually, the glass is not only half full but it is refillable.
