*Dandelion - Taraxacum officinale*

Well April is just around the corner and already the Dandelions are popping up all over the city. Sorry this blog has been dead, but not much I can do during the winter. But I will be blogging more now with Spring almost here.

Last year I tried a Dandelion recipe that was yum yummy! I forgot to post it though and just found the recipe in my notes as I'm preparing to revize my "The Druid's Herbal..."

So here it is.

-Fried Dandelion Blossoms-

* Fresh Dandelion blossoms
* 1 egg
* 2 teaspoons of milk (I used almong milk)
* Crumbled crackers or bread crumbs (experiment)
* Olive Oil (I been told grape seed oil is better)
* Frying pan

Crack an egg and put it in a small dipping bowl and add 2 teaspoons of milk and beat/mix it good.

Pick fresh Dandelion blossom and wash them and lay them on a paper towel to dry. Then take each blossom and dip them in the egg batter, then roll them through either powdered crackers or bread crumb.

Take a frying pan and heat a tiny bit of extra virgin olive oil to fry with. Place each crumb coated blossom in pan and fry till crisp and serve.

Yum Yum!
