How about a sweet, healthy infused tea for summer? Ingredients about 2 cups honeysuckle blossoms For garnish fresh mint sprigs a few honeysuckle blossoms Instructions 1. Pluck the blossoms from the honeysuckle vine. 2. Discard any leaves or green parts. Try to take the freshly opened flowers, and even the buds that are about to open. Put them in a pitcher or mason jar. 3. Cover with about 2 1/2 cups water that has been heated to just boiling. 4. Give it a good stir and let steep at room temperature for several hours. Then refrigerate overnight. 5. Strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer, cheesecloth, or a coffee filter. The coffee filter will yield a crystal clear tea. 6. Serve cold over ice with a mint sprig and a few blossoms for garnish.
Sorry for you guys struggling, but I have honeysuckle growing on the hill behind my house. This is being made NOW!
Sooo trying this. Have some vines groups on my road that are going to be blooming anytime now :D
And so the search for honeysuckle begins....
I always used to eat the "honey" out of these flowers as a kid!
This sounds so good! I used to live in a neighborhood that had tons of honeysuckle.
