"Dandelions" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Beverage. Clean and dry the dandelion roots, roast in a warm oven until they turn dark brown, grind, and brew into a coffee like drink; perk like coffee, using 1 teaspoon per cup of water.
Caution: Do not use dandelions that have been treated with herbicides, as may be the case with roadside growth. Pick only those that are about 25 feet from sprayed areas.
 

2. Salad greens. Use tender young dandelion shoots for vitamin-rich salads or steam as a potherb. After the flowers form, the greens are too bitter to eat.
Caution: Do not use dandelions that have been treated with herbicides.
 

3. Dye. Boil the flowers for a yellow dye, the roots for magenta.
 

4. Tonic. Steep 2 teaspoons dried dandelion leaves in 1 cup boiling water; strain and use as an appetite stimulant.

Caution: Do not use dandelions that have been treated with herbicides.
