For those of you who would like to try something different and wildcrafted, this is the recipe I created.
Forage for white, pink or red clover. All of the clover is fine to use and you can mix them like I did. However, red clover has the strongest healing properties. Pick the flower heads of the clover, choosing only the flowers that are fresh with no brown on them.
You will need about 1-2 cups of clover buds. I used a full two cups, however some may not like the end texture result. So if you have texture issues, I would play it safe with one cup of clover flowers.
Remove the petals and place in a medium sized pot.
To the pot add:
1/3 cup white sugar (you could substitute with honey)
1 large egg
2 cups 2% milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup 10% cream
pinch of salt
3 Tablespoons Minute Tapioca
Whisk together and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Slowly bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Allow mixture to come to a full boil, this takes about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Let cool for about 20 minutes, stirring twice. This pudding will thicken as it cools. Serve warm or chilled. Garnish with a fresh flower if you would like. Refrigerate any leftovers. Enjoy!
