When you don’t have enough time in the world for everything. And when fresh flowers often wilted so fast than we want they to be. One of the way to preserved it is through fermentation process.
In the medicinal history, people often used lilac to get rid the intestines of parasitic worms. And was also used in the treatment of malaria or fever. Although the purpose i made the recipe is just for preservation and not for medicinal benefit. But we can conciderate it as an added benefit.
Just be sure to use organic flowers. Because flowers often sprayed with pestiside and chemical. We don’t want any of that on our food. Feel free to use other medicinal flowers you can find around you. Such as rose, elderberry, chamomile, lavender, honeysuckle, etc.
Local and raw organic is the best when you make preserved with honey. Local honey may help prevent seasonal allergies. It also contain enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that your body needs. Select a light, mild-flavored variety of honey to avoid overpowering the natural taste and aroma of the flower. Double the recipe when you got extra flower on hand.
