This recipe comes from my mother-in-law, Myrtress Harrington, who enjoyed the pretty golden spread over pancakes, French toast and breakfast cereal when she was a girl.—Myrtress Harrington, Steuben, Maine

Ingredients

  • 60 fresh white clover blossoms
  • 40 fresh red clover blossoms

Directions

  • 1. Wash clover and rose petals throughly in cool running water; drain well. Pat dry. Place in a large metal bowl; set aside.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 11, 2013

"I've been making this "honey" for many years (since it first appeared in Taste of Home)! Our family has used this in place of honey for every recipe. Because it's stored in the refrigerator, it lasts a long time."
