Dandelion is on the Menu, Spring Has Sprung

When you walk outside a Sea of  Yellow meets you. It is time for the humble weed to make its appearance. Here In Central Pennsylvania we eat them.

Easy Dandelion cookies. You will need 1/2 of oil, 1/2of honey, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup flour, and one cup rolled oats. Finally the topping is to go into yard and pick one cup of dandelion flowers. You will begin by mixing the oil and honey. Blend in the eggs and vanilla. Incorporate the dry , finally adding the washed and cleaned flower petals. These bake in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes. I do a tablespoon of batter for each. These are divine.

Simple Greens Salad. 4 cups of Dandelion greens, 1 red onion round sliced, 2 tomatoes sliced. Toss those ingredients together in a large bowl and then plate onto a platter. A simple Lemon vinaigrette compliments the bitterness of the greens . Salt and Pepper to taste!

Let’s not forget . You can make Dandelion Mead, Jelly, Wine, And Tea. You may even want to try My Hot Bacon Dressing with them Too!
