Eat Your Weeds

One day it will surely be a baffling mystery to anyone studying our stage of humanity: Why we went to considerable effort, expense and energy killing "weeds" with beautiful bright yellow flowers that are edible and have tremendous healing properties.

Dandelions are rich in vitamins A,B,C,D, iron, calcium, beta carotene, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. They are said to aid healing in anemia, arthritis, cysts, cancer, liver, pancreas, bladder and kidney problems.

The greens, flowers and roots can all be eaten.

There are some look--alikes, but no poisonous ones. However, please use caution when picking them, because it is extremely important that the ground has not been sprayed with any chemical fertilizer or herbicides. Make sure that the pesticide DDT was not used as it stays in the ground for decades and remains toxic.

Find a safe dandelion patch, and bring home the makings for pasta sauce!

This video includes a dandelion pesto recipe! Bon Appetit!
