Overview

A favorite garden weed, Dandelion provides beauty, nectar, medicine, food, fodder and more! Let’s bring back an old tradition of cultivating dandelion as a regular food staple. Her strength does well in any garden conditions, even on garden edges right alongside your perennials or annuals. Dandelion is a wonderful companion plant. In good soil the Dandelion root can reach a foot or more and grow ½ inch to 1 inch around.

Dandelion – Taraxacum officinale

A favorite garden weed, Dandelion provides beauty, nectar, medicine, food, fodder and more! Let’s bring back an old tradition of cultivating dandelion as a regular food staple. Her strength does well in any garden conditions, even on garden edges right alongside your perennials or annuals. Dandelion is a wonderful companion plant. In good soil the Dandelion root can reach a foot or more and grow ½ inch to 1 inch around.

As a highly nutritive food Dandelion offers many minerals and nutrients to your diet. Medicinally it has many uses but Dandelion is best known for being a gentle and effective liver tonic and aiding in the liver’s function of cleansing blood. Dandelion roots are known to nourish women’s breasts, uterus and ovaries. Dandelion roots and leaves are digestive bitters. The leaves can help with circulation and moving of lymph nodes. Dandelion flowers can be used in skin care. The list of medicinal uses of Dandelion goes on and on! Too much to list here. Dandelion can be prepared as tea, dried herb, tincture and infusion.

As a food we regard Dandelion very highly. The bitterness of dandelion roots and leaves is easily lost in stews, curries, chilis, casseroles and beans. In small amounts, such as in eggs or pastas, or as side dishes the bitterness is a welcome flavor to more adventurous palates. Try dandelion greens cooked southern style like collard greens with vinegar and a little brown sugar or honey (and bacon if so inclined). Young Dandelion greens are less bitter and can be added to salads or sandwiches. Dandelion flowers make a delicious wine! Roasted Dandelion root can also be used as a coffee substitute (sometimes in combination with other herbs) and can make a delicious tea as well. In these cases roots harvested in the Autumn will be less bitter.

“The young leaves may also be boiled as a vegetable, spinach fashion, thoroughly drained, sprinkled with pepper and salt, moistened with soup or butter and served very hot. If considered a little too bitter, use half spinach, but the Dandelion must be partly cooked first in this case, as it takes longer than spinach. As a variation, some grated nutmeg or garlic, a teaspoon of chopped onion or grated lemon peel can be added to the greens when they are cooked.”
– Maud Grieve, A Modern Herbal

My Notes RE Bartering:

We are interested in bartering for organic or homegrown/homespun yarn, or other homegrown natural fibers that we can use for natural dying. We would also barter for honey, perennial fruit, nut, medicinal seeds or plants we don't have on hand. Other offers will also be considered.

You may scroll down to the Product Enquiry form to inquire about bartering with them and possibly setting up arrangements for a trade. All barters are facilitated privately between the parties involved. Barter at your own risk.
