Lilac Flower Honey
Hi Everyone, It’s April and it also Lilac blossom season here in New Jersey and I am rejoicing because Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers because of their heavenly scent – did you know that the flowers are edible?
The season for Lilac flowers is short, just about 2 weeks, and then they are gone!
I want to share ways of preserving them to further appreciate how special they are and one of those ways is this Lilac Flower Honey!
Do you want to know more information about Lilac Flowers?
I share a lot of information in our Lilac Recipes Collection, linked below, check it out!
Aren’t these Lilac Blooms pretty?
Do you have any Lilacs in your yard?
Lilac Tree Tradition
I’m originally from New England and there’s a tradition to plant a Lilac tree close to your back door.
I would love to plant another Lilac tree in our yard near our back door to have that tradition here in NJ.
You can use this Lilac Flower Honey just like you would normal honey.
You can pick out the flowers if you want or leave them in.
Foraging Book Resource
I linked (Amazon Affiliate link) to the foraging book, “Northeast Foraging,” that I use below and in the recipe card at the end of the post.
Always make sure that you get a positive identification on any plants that you forage for.
In addition to consulting foraging guidebooks, I recommend getting confirmation from foraging experts that you may know.
Remember, always safety first!
