To me, the very first signs of summer are the bright yellow faces of the dandelions springing up everywhere. What better way to celebrate summer in a salad than by tossing some of their tasty greens with salty bacon and a hot, salty vinaigrette. The greens are bitter, so if you don't like bitter, you may want to add a little sugar to the dressing.
This tastes much better than the Dandelion wine
we tried to make years ago and is possibly better for you.
Leave plenty of flowers for the bees ,
as they are an important food source in April and May
( in our part of the world )
To everyone's good health.
This is my submission for the design challenge - Edible Flowers.
I love to paint flowers, and to combine them with a recipe illustration has been a wonderful experience as I illustrated this DANDELION JELLY. The Dandelion blossoms and leaves are handpainted in watercolours and digitized for this purpose.
Dandelions are delightful, edible flowers! Their cheerful, yellow blossoms add a festive touch to any yard, bees love the pollen, plus the flowers and leaves are full of healthy vitamins and minerals. Enjoy a cup of Dandy Dandelion Tea to get started on your Dandelion culinary adventures!
A really amazing plant that is completely eatable. The buds can be preserved as capers, leaves can be used as spinach, dandelion honey can be made out of the blossoms and the roots are used for tea.
My morning starts with a can of dandelion tea very often, it helps to detoxify my body and boost my immune system.
It contains vitamin A, B6, C and K. Minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium.
We have never used weedkiller on our lawn, and in the spring it becomes a carpet of purple and yellow, full of violet and dandelion blossoms. This year, I thought I'd experiment with making homemade dandelion wine. My first attempt didn't turn out too badly; very strong, but with a sweet, citrus-herb mead-like taste. Part art, part science, your mileage may vary.
