Saturday I decided it would be fun to try foraging for a bit of food. I had seen a recipe a few months ago for basically fried dandelions in The Rhythm of Family, and wrote it down in my composition notebook titled "Melissa's Brain." This is the notebook that I keep all my to do lists and budgets and random plans in. It even doubles as a prayer journal.
The recipe is originally from Fat of the Land.
I love trying new things. Especially when they're free! Ben thought I was 100% crazy. (But I think he secretly loves that about me.) He is awesome and he tried them and didn't mind them at all. I told Z that these were the flowers we picked and she tried some too. I think our overall reaction was that they're alright, but not spectacular. And being dandelions, they have a bit of a bitter aftertaste. If I make them again I'd try experimenting with some spices.
I'd love to learn a bit more about foraging in my area! (Central Maine) If you have any insight, please share in the comments section! =]
