bottling september: making dandelion vinegar.

Welcome to michaelaevanow.com!

I decided to change Babushka Mama to Michaela Evanow (although this post still contains pictures from Babushka Mama) because I feel more comfortable simply being myself.

I have a journey ahead of me, and although Babushka Mama will always remain a part of me, I felt like going with my own name made more sense for this journey.

Thank you for all the love and support. I can already tell people are more comfortable “liking” ME on Facebook over Babushka Mama. Especially men 😉

Slightly sweet, like fresh, raw potatoes. That’s the smell lingering on my fingertips from a 5 minute forage in the front garden. I picked our weeds, or rather, our dandelions.

I’ve made a little jar of dandelion vinegar and it couldn’t be more simple.

You’ll need:

  • a small canning jar with a lid.
  • dandelion flowers, stems snipped.
  • organic apple cider vinegar.

Gently rinse the dandelions, strain and put into a jar. The flowers should fill the jar. Add enough apple cider vinegar to cover the flowers, to the top of the jar.

Give a little shake and let sit for 4-6 weeks. Strain off the flowers and enjoy. You can certainly use the vinegar in salad dressings or other recipes beforehand.

Have a beautiful day.
