BUSH COOKING: Simply Dandelions

Ease of Bush Cooking: Very Easy. Cooked in 10 mins and extremely nutritious. One of the best bush greens out there! See my Dandelion information page.
Servings: 1-2
Kit Required:
Dandelions (small bag full)
Knob of Butter
Salt & Pepper
Harvest the dandelion in early spring, when the greens are at there best, and before they have flowered. Grab the dandelion by the leaves, and with a knife, dig out the root, pulling up the entire plant, shaking off any excess dirt. Collect a good bag size of dandelions.
Clean any excess dirt or grass, then place in a pot of warm water. Bring to a boil and leave it on a rolling boil for 5 mins. Drain off the water to remove their bitterness, then repeat again with fresh water for another boil until the dandelions are soft.
Serve hot with a knob of butter and season with salt and pepper.
