Dandelion greens make an excellent salad. Not as good as Canada thistle though.

I was actually just searching recipes to make Dandelion wine (I knew they had to be good for something).

Aside from the fact that I'm impatient...and don't want to wait a year for my booze...some of the recipes sound quite tempting to try Wink.

a year????

what recipes are you reading? pretty sure my mom has a recipe that is alot shorter then that

Also.. Dandelion jelly is pretty good too I can get that recipe if you want
If you are using the greens, use from fresh young plants. The leaves get very bitter as they get older.


Little know fact Dandelions are not native to North America. It is because of this and because of no natural enemy that they have exploded to the point of being pretty much everywhere.

every dandelion wine recipe i could find says it takes at LEAST 8 months, but recommends a year, and one of them says wait at least 3 years.

Never heard of dandelion jelly...might have to look that one up.

And...yes...i did know that little-known fact...they were brought over from Europe to make dandelion wine...and they just kind of spread everywhere.

Another little-known-fact...if you pull a dandelion and leave a bit of root while it's still yellow...it will grow back quickly...if you wait and pull them after they've turned white though...and even leave a bit sitting on the ground, they won't grow back that year...you won't see them again till next year.

That's great. Love how these meals are packed with salt and/or fat. The Pizza Hut one is great. 2 slices of a 12" pizza and you still have over 1000mg sodium. It's crazy they actually published this. The KFC one has 22 grams of fat. Dunkin Donuts is an english muffin sandwich and a cup of tea. And it still has over 1000mg of sodium and 15 grams of fat. An english muffin on it's own has about a gram of fat and 1/4 the sodium. Throw in some egg whites and veggie bacon and you've got an alternative with about 1.5-2 grams of fat and about half the sodium.
