Great article first, but had no idea about Edna Staebler and Food That Really Schmecks ! I just googled it and so thank you once again, for another Article Learning moment :)

Dandelions remind me of primroses (dare I say it?) lovely flowers, but the foliage leaves something to be desired. Now that I know how to eat the foliage leaves, well, that's a different story... Great article! xx, Carrie

Great article Lee Anne. I've never tried greens, and heard of the wine, but didn't realize you made it from the petals. Do you still work for ice cream?

Dea...Edna Staebler and her Mennonite Country cooking series are my most used cook books, I love all of the recipes in them. Mom has a few that I keep borrowing and forgetting to return, but she always reminds me. The recipes are from a time that nobody cared about anything in food except the taste.

I am so glad I could bring this poor so called weed to peoples attention.

Yes, debilu, I still work for ice cream :)

We use to put the tender new leaves in our salads as a bitter green, and sprinkle with crumbled bleu cheese.
