The Grow System
BTW, I just ate that little dandelion - the entire thing and it was not too bitter at all... actually a little sweet!
I absolutely love dandelions! I can't wait to start foraging for them ❤
Started another batch of infused dandelion flower oil just last week. Great for making salves!
I'm looking forward to the first campfire by the creek of the year, trout, wrapped in bacon and stuffed with ramps, a wilted salad in that grease of dandelions and plantains with sorrel to give everything a lemony flavor.
One of my aunts used to make dandelion wine. It was surprisingly good. Unfortunately I've never learned how to make it.
Here is a good one
when I tried dandelion root for the first time, I was surprised, that it is more sweet than bitter. Since then I make dandelion root infusion. A very pleasant taste. And I tried out “coffee” out of roasted dandelion roots. It was very good. However one has to be careful while roasting not to overdo it.
I like everything dandelion except for the dandelion coffee! Chicory root is good though, but I like it roasted light/medium, blended with dark roasted coffee. We call that Creole Coffee where i come from!
@judsoncarroll4 I purchase dandelion "coffee" in tea bag form. Teeccino brand Dandelion Caramel Nut has a nice flavor with a little added cream and sweetener.
It seems I did try that once and it wasn't bad.
I've been picking all of the dandelions in my backyard every day for a week and drying them. When I get enough I'm going to make some dandelion oil.
Dandelion coffee isn't one of my favorites either. Chicory is wonderful in coffee. It took a while to get them started, but now I have dandelions growing in my patio garden.
I'm looking forward to the dandelion capers!
