>> 2 cups honey
>> 3 cups water
>> 3 cups fresh sliced burdock root
>> small amount of granulated sugar
Add water and honey to a pot and place it on the stove over medium heat. Stir until dissolved.
Once completely dissolved, add the burdock root pieces to the mixture. Stirring occasionally, simmer for about 45 minutes or until the burdock root pieces start to look soft and slightly translucent. Remove from heat and let it cool.
Strain, be sure to save the syrup (covered in the fridge) for other uses (see below).
Place the root pieces on a cooling rack. Put some granulated sugar in a small bowl. Once the burdock root pieces have just about dried,one-by-one sprinkle (or coat) burdock root pieces in the granulated sugar and return them onto the rack.
Once dried, enjoy. The candied root will be soft. Enjoy a piece or two of candied burdock root every day!
Unpasteurized honey is not affordable to many people. Swap it out with sugar but of course this will mean that this treat will not be as healthy.
Syrup Uses: Some suggested uses for the syrup include: in smoothies, over ice cream, over cooked vegetables, on pancakes, etc.
