Vegan creamed honey through seeding
Giver: ABout 7.5 dl or 3.2 cups
Note that if you are measuring your starter powder in volume (spoons or milliliters) you can't use the method of multiplication with 0.11. You need to weigh it. If you are using an already creamed honey as a starter, you can use a volume measurement. So to a batch off 240 ml you would ad just about 24 mL
You need
  • A batch of dandelion honey app. 7.5 dl or 3,2 cups
  • And as a seeding starter you need either
a) Powdered sugar (from regular white or light brown cane sugar)
  • If the dandelion honey weighs 1100 g you need 110 g of sugar.
  • Pulverize the sugar into a fine powder. You should get 1 cup of powdered sugar from ½ cup of sugar.
  • OR if you have it
b) Some already firmed Hunny
  • 10 % The weight in seeding hunny: If your hunny weighs 980 g you need 98 g of seeding hunny. If it's 750 mL (3.2 Cups) you need 75 mL (1/3 cup) of seeding hunny.
  1. Both your dandelion syrup and the seeding starter should be about room temperature. If it's too hot, you risk melting the starter crystals.
  2. Add the seeding hunny or powder to a bowl. Stir in some of the liquid dandelion syrup to make it smooth. Stir it till it looks completely even in color - this may take a couple of minutes. I recommend doing this by hand and if using a machine do it gently so you don't stir too much air into the mix.
  3. Poor in the rest of the syrup and continue to stir until it is evenly distributed.
  4. Divide into smaller jars and set them aside chilled (about 14C or 57F) until the crystallization has taken place. In my experience the crystallization takes place very fast (about 24 hours) so it shouldn't be necessary to stir it but otherwise do it for about 30 seconds each day.
  5. After it has set, you can still leave it only covered by a cloth, to let more water evaporate and get a firmer consistency through lower water content.
- Chilled environment: It needs to be between 10°C (50°F) and 18°C (64°F) and as close to 14°C (57°F) you can get. If your refrigerator has a vegetable drawer this will often be perfect. Or check your garage or a chilly garden shed, they might work.
