This was completely Nixie's idea and what a great idea it was! Pears and dandelion make the perfect combination and with the leftover leaves we made some crisps!
Lilac trees are one of my absolute favourites, the smell takes me back to my childhood in Sweden, I remember seeing them in bloom everywhere and I remember always finding some to bring home to put into a vase so I couldn't be more pleased to have some growing right next to us.
I am so excited it is finally Dandelion season! I have been quite impatiently waiting for them to start to be in bloom and to be in abundance! There are so many things we are planning to make with them this year and for now here's three recipes for you to try.
Everyone in our house is a huge chocolate lover so this was a really fun way to celebrate Spring and to just make our chocolate extra special. It all started because Nixie had gone into our garden and picked all of our Primroses so I wanted to think of something that we could make with them really quick so that they wouldn't go to waste and so after a search online I came up with the idea of chocolate Bark.
Last Wednesday while Nixie was at forest school me and Forrest went to our little special spot along the seawall and I couldn't help but notice Primroses everywhere! They are such happy little flowers, I can't help but smile whenever I see them. I didn't want to make crystallized flowers again, I really wanted to try something new so while Forrest had a nap I managed to make some Primrose Jam!
