Recipe Notes

*To make a simple dandelion tea, gather 2-4 cups worth of dandelion flowers and pinch off the green backs.

Place them in a saucepan and cover with 2-3 cups of water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat; cover and let steep for 2-6 hours.

The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor (and the more beneficial for your health), so just taste test every so often. FYI, the longer you leave it, the darker the color will be from the bits of green that made it into the batch.

When its done, strain out the flowers and measure the tea for this recipe. Drink whatever is left over.

**You can find organic beef gelatin on Amazon or your local health food store. I prefer these organic brands over Knox because of where they're sourced and how helpful they can be at building up health.
