One of the most common and most despised weeds in the world is the dandelion. They seem to grow everywhere, particularly where you don’t want them to grow. That is a classic definition of a ‘weed’; a plant that grows where you don’t want it to grow. However, there are some fantastic reasons to eat dandelions, too. Here are the top 10 reasons:
There are quite a few recipes for dandelions. However, the leaves are quite simple to just rinse and steam. The roots can be washed, peeled, sliced, and cooked like carrots. The roots can also be dried, ground, and used as a coffee substitute. The flowers can be batter fried or made into dandelion wine. None of these are difficult.
I'm purposely leaving number 10 blank. There are a great number of excellent reasons to eat dandelions other than the ones listed. By leaving number 10 blank, it is meant as encouragement for you to fill in that blank.
What reason can you think of that wasn't included in this list?
