I clean and dry dandelion blooms and make tea by boiling the blooms (15 minutes). Really good stuff. yummy
Sounds very healthy loke, i hear dandelions are very good for you
The tea is good. It’s that time of year here in the states. Dandelions are growing now.
I seen some here and there as well but they havent taken off yet
Yeah. They’re just starting here too. Only seen a few blossoms but lots of leaves. The leaves are very bitter if not used early.
Do you boil the leaves as well as the flower?
I can’t say what I make from dandelions.
If you want to eat the leaves as a green vegetable yes you boil the leaves but the bigger the leaves are the more bitter they taste. You have to make sure to harvest the leaves early in the year. Big long leaves are just plain yucky
Haha you silly
What? Seriously Cxxxx. Xxx
@ZombieMombie Ive heard dandelion root tea is really good but those roots are very hard to dig up and I’ve never been successful at it. Course I didn’t have a spade to dig with. I tried to use a spoon.
Its COUGH medicine!
You can roast the roots and grind it to make a drink like coffee.
Very nice. What do you use to dig the roots?
Really? So you could get high from it??
Don’t start nothing crazy you goofball!
@Loke The first time I went to a restaurant in Buffalo with hubby, I ordered a steak and dandelion green sandwich. When it came the leaves were huge and so bitter. Just nasty.
Wwus its cough medicine?
No. I was just playing around.
Yep. They’re nasty. If you pick them when they’re first sprouting not so bad.
