Our first recipe from a customer for National Vegetarian Week is this lovely sounding dessert from Marie Joelle West! She writes:
Hi lovely Beanies folks,
In response to your quest for recipes this week, I've attached a recipe for dandelion ice-cream, which I think is very special. I served it at my last supper club on Saturday: http://bit.ly/1JX7QzG together with Goosnargh cakes (a forgotten food product from Slow Food), strawberries and dandelion honey (recipe included). A picture is attached. Please let me know what you think of it.

Dandelion ice-cream with dandelion honey
For 500ml ice-cream
For 1 jar of dandelion honey
~ 40 dandelion flowers, picked on a sunny day
200g golden caster sugar
Put the flowers into an air-tight container. Bring the water to the boil and pour over the flowers. Leave to infuse 1-2 days. Strain the water, add the sugar and simmer for 2-3 hours until the mixture reaches the consistency of honey. Store in a sterilised jar.
