Eat the Flowers
It’s dandelion season! Most people disparage dandelion in their lawn, but there are a number of us who celebrate it. The flowers, leaves and roots are all edible, and perfect for Dandelion Flower Fritters and other wonderful treats.
A year ago, I got together with a group of friends for a Foraged Feast. One of my friends made Dandelion Flower Fritters, and I was hooked.

You’ve probably seen the Facebook meme that encourages us to leave the flowers for the bees. As I mentioned in my previous post on Dandelion Root Coffee: “While I wholeheartedly agree that there’s no reason to eradicate dandelions from your lawn, I can assure you that harvesting the leaves, flowers or roots for food will not hurt the bees”.
There’s plenty for everyone!
