You notice a perfect little yellow flower in your yard, and you can either mow it, spray it with weed killer, or you could pull it up and enjoy it. The Dandelion, small but powerful, wonder weed. Known for its healing powers for the urinary system, the Dandelion can be used in so many foods. Yes, you can actually eat them.
One of the favorite ways are straight into a salad, but if you have a sweet tooth you can use the petals in baking cookies. The list does not end there. Try it in burgers. If you are worried about a “taste”, there usually is not one, but you will still get the healing qualities.
If you love wine, and even better can make your own wine there is a great recipe from eattheweeds.com. I suggest this site to see what other weeds you could be putting on your plate, and making your body happy at the same time.
Before you kill this mighty weed, give it another chance at life doing something useful. To find more recipes and craft ideas check out the following sites:
