Food for Forage: Dandelion, It’s Not Just a Weed

SNIPPET:

For decades now, dandelions have been a source of disdain for gardeners. Down on their knees, galoshes in a bunch, they have ripped them up with reckless abandon, fearful that the flowers will bloom and send seeds whirling around the well-manicured rows of the garden. Or else, they have done such violent things as mowed down dandelions in their youth, dumped boiling water on them, and doused them in vinegar.

But, times have changed, and the new-age gardener is reaching further back into the days of old. Dandelions have long been used medicinally, and a century or more ago, they were a respected source of food for many cultures, including Native Americans. Though suburbia put a temporary hold on that, the dandelion is making a comeback. Nowadays, it’s finding its way back into our cuisine.

It only makes sense to make use of the apparent “noxious weed”, as it is super nutritious, medicinal, and abundant. We don’t even have to cultivate dandelions, as we do most of the vegetables we eat because just one flower head can provide up to 200 new plants, with no tilling, fertilizing, or “weeding” required.
