M*, I* and I picked 2 large colanders full of dandelions yesterday afternoon between our yard and the orchard across the street. We have boiled them in the large porcelain enamel pot and they are now steeping for 2 days until the next step. Do you know if porcelain enamel is the same as glass or ceramic? I am concerned because my recipe strictly states “glass or ceramic, Not Metal” Which side of this fence does a porcelain enameled (metal) pot lie? It is the only thing I have big enough to hold 3 gallons of boiling water and 24 cups of dandelion heads. It’s purpose is for making jelly…I hope I haven’t ruined it already. Will keep you posted on the results. Next step takes place Friday afternoon.
