    sautéed! Yummy yummy in my tummy! I just back from my local farmers market with a big 'ol bag of 'em.

    My Grandmother always made 'spring greens' from the various 'weeds' in the yard. Now I wish I had followed her around and had learned exactly what she chose and exactly what she avoided.

    After a long winter of canned veggies from last year's garden these early fresh greens were a real treat in the days before year round access to mountains of 'fresh' veggies in the grocery store.

    I'm going to have to try picking some leaves as soon as the dandelions sprout up. It's been a long winter, but it shouldn't be long now. I'm really liking the idea of free food, too.

    I often pick them wild in the park near me, also buy them at store. Now going to try digging up a root! They are in the chicory family which is generally beneficial and I try to include it often (endive, etc.). I drink chicory coffee, too.

    I have LOADS of dandelions growing in my garden - and I shall be using them more and more... Also ground elder, nettles, jack by the hedge, and sorrel. Wish I knew more about wild foraging.What is good - and what is not.

    You know you've been doing a lot of pickling when you read "picking" and think it was "pickling" instead, and then wonder what pickled dandelion roots taste like...
