Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
It is early spring! If you want to surprise people with yummy food from your yard (note: I said yummy, NOT healthy), pick your yard clean of dandelion flowers and fry them up!
Unusual, very tasty but simple pickle recipe for early spring.
A homemade tincture to help fight heartburn.
I took foraged dandelion roots and combined them with hollyhock roots, honey and maple syrup to make a root beer.
One man's junk is another girl's treasure: while my neighbor systematically mows down his dandelions, I'm making mine into cordial...
Earthy, sweet, with a hint of vanilla, and very much like honey!
Dandelions are abundant at this time of year- and there’s nothing better to do with them than make something that will last for years- or at least the year it takes for it to be finished. But is it worth the time? Absolutely.
You can't beat the weeds, so you might as well eat them. Dandelions are so healthy...and make good pancakes!
Weed the yard and feed the family at the same time, has multi-tasking ever been more virtuous? Dandelions add a tang to these tasty sausages of veal and swine.
With dandelions everywhere there was only one thing I could do- turn them into jelly.
