Welcome to the wonderful world of autumn’s wild edibles! The dandelion greens looked so delicious this morning that I almost missed the lemon-flavored sorrel leaves beside them which are so nice to sprinkle on a soup. It’s lovely, yummy yellow blossoms were still asleep when I took this photo. Flowers on your salad tonight?
Did you realize there are lots of different kinds of dandelions? I had not paid attention. These look like the ones they sell at Fresh Fields, err Whole Foods. Dandelions are the bitterest greens so at this time of year I think we should cook them.
This head of greens made me realize that there are either hundreds of separate types of dandelions or they are into crossbreeding. Must Google.
And the corn-flavored chickweed is thriving so gather a lot for your pot! Have you ever eaten a wild edible? Don’t let another day go by! Visit a lawn near you.
