I had to eat them as a diuretic ....an acquired taste when eaten raw but not bad. My neighbour used to make dandelion wine...also an acquired taste:(

At the Greenmarket the mesculin sellers always include (they do ask first) if you want edible flowers in your mix .. nasturtium are very tasty too

I love the dandelions in the fields.. my husband deplores them and I think they're wonderful.

Glad you'll do the challenge! Let me know when you have it up and I'll attach it to my post!

Beautiful picture of something which some overzealous sorts try to eliminate in their futile efforts to have the perfect lawn.

Between the beauty which you depict in this photo and its culinary properties, I think it's time to embrace the dandelion.
