Homemade Honey


7 eight ounce jars


10 cups granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon alum
3 cups water
2 cups fireweed blossoms
1 cup red clover blossoms
2 1/2 cups white clover blossoms


In a large saucepan, bring water, sugar and alum to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. Take off heat.

Rinse off blossoms in strainer and drain well (be sure not to leave any green parts on blossoms or honey will be wild or grassy tasting).

Stir in blossoms and steep for 3 hours. Remove flowers, strain through cheesecloth if necessary. Reheat to a boil, then pour into jars and seal.
