A fun recipe to do with the kids this summer when the fields are in full bloom with unsprayed wild clover. Over a hundred years old from an old New Hampshire native.
2 1/2 cups white clover flowers (No green parts)
1 cup red clover flowers (No green parts)
Petals of four wild roses
10 cups sugar
1 teas. alum
3 cup water
1. Wash blossoms and drain well.
2. Bring all ingredients except alum to a boil and stir slowly.
3. Add alum and stir 60 times (no more, no less). Turn heat off
Allow to streep for 3 hours.
4. Strain mixture through cheesecloth, reheat to boil and pour into clean sterilized 6 oz containers.
Note: If you use green parts your recipe will taste grassy.
