Edible Milkweed Flowers



Asclepias syriaca in Red Hook.  Four foot stems with sweet flowers, heavy with bees, dripping latex when picked...


Lilac milkweed flower syrup, made after blanching the flowers to remove the white sap, and infusing sugar syrup. And prosecco, of course. Called it a Milkweed Royale. Smells like fields of honey bees.
