One of our favorite restaurants La Cremaillere, sent out Dandelion Food Facts:
“-Dandelions are not weeds, but are from the same family as sunflowers.
-A dandelion seed can travel up to five miles before it lands.
-Every part of the dandelion is edible.
-1 cup of dandelion greens = 535% of your Vitamin K and 112% of your Vitamin A requirement.
-Up until the 1800’s dandelions were seen as extremely beneficial and people would remove grass to plant dandelions.”
Here are some great spring dandelion recipes, but only good if you are not putting chemicals on your yard!
