Seeing folks after Ramps, Morrells are popping up. Dandelions are just barely flowering. Grew up with Grandma and Mom out picking greens. A couple simmers with water change, then fried with a slice or two of bacon. Grandma always said it was good for the blood after a long winter! I have one or two batches every spring, then Purslane a bit later in the season.


you're only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

I make green powder out of the dandelion greens and roots from young dandelions out of the garden patch for winder dishes, mostly egg scrambles, I'm allergic to fish so I eat lots of Purslane for omega 3s. Purslane is one of my favorite greens.

Make dandelion wine, bowhunter! Liquid sunshine in a bottle! Make sure to age before trying it though, you may think I'm lying to you!

Maybe it's a Michigan thing? I have eaten buckets and buckets full of Dandelion greens over the years. My folks always gathered them. We'd even freeze them if the picking was easy and we got a big mess. They also made wine....of course, they were always brewing up some sort of alcoholic delight. I've even made "coffee" from the baked roots. It was actually pretty good.
