Tasted, added water… and picked out more blades of grass, leaves, twigs and other unidentified weeds. Continued cooking covered, total of 25 minutes…

Major discovery was the few root tops that I decided to leave in the pan tasted better than the greens. Sort of sweet. Need bigger pieces of root to analyse. Next time I will collect dandelions with a trowel.
