Step One: find some clean purple clover, i.e. where pesticides, car fumes and/or other schmutz has not touched it. (mine came from the market)
STEP TWO: remove green bits, rinse blossoms (store where they can dry out or they’ll go soggy and rot; can be used fresh or dried; dried they can last months).
STEP THREE: add 3 cups blossoms to 4 cups water; boil 5 to 7 minutes then strain (the cooked blossoms are a nice garden mulch/compost).
The liquid will be brown at this point but when you add 1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice, alchemy happens and it becomes… pink. (A very fun ‘presto’ moment—to watch, or stun audiences with!)
