Spring is here for most folks and now that it is there are dandelions everywhere. What better time to watch Clara’s Depression cooking video on how to make a dandelion salad.
Yes you can eat them. Better yet they are free for the picking, so go foraging and get your free salad greens, just make sure they haven’t been sprayed with weed killer.
My neighbors all send the lawngreen people over to try and talk me into having them spray my yard and I always tell them no thanks because I may want to eat out of it. They always look at like they think I am joking and when they finally get that I am not joking they look at me like I am a bit nuts but I don’t care. If I have to eat the weeds someday I don’t want them covered in poison.
