I wrote the other day about dandelions, and how I found the idea of eating the flowers a little outlandish. I needed to man up were my last words.
Well I found the courage this morning when out in the garden with my better half. I had told her about my research and the large amount of goodies in the flowers. I saw a couple of flowers and decided to give them a go.
Verdict? The flowers actually tasted better than the leaves. I was going to have a third helping but saw a bunch of little bugs in the flower. Looking back on that now, I should have manned up on that one too. Since when did cave men worry about a few bugs?
I think I’ll start adding dandelion flowers to my salads from time to time.
