Another harvest done! I dug dandelion roots from under the plum tree and roasted them for dandelion coffee. There was a surprisingly good crop this year, considering the weather problems we've had.
Several big fat ones tempted me to try, at last, to taste one fresh and then to boil a piece to eat like a vegetable. Believe it or not, it's good! The only problem with the boiled piece was that there was a stringy core in the middle of it. I don't know if they're all that way or if this was just an old one or maybe it was because of the dry year. It's something to remember if you're into survival. The taste was very good without salt or anything else added.
But I digress... :)
