Dandelion Flower Recipe

Spring is here; and as wild foods fan, I am stoked. Yesterday, I stumbled on my first foraged spring treat: Miner’s Lettuce. (Likely Siberian Miner’s Lettuce.) It tasted fantastic, like baby spinach with a better texture.

I noticed dandelions are already popping up, so I grabbed a handful of yellow flowers for a dish I have been wanting to try: Dandelion Fritters.  <- Click for the recipe

Vancouver felt it, Victoria felt it… but it was centered very close to my home town in Campbell River.  Stay tuned and I’ll keep this page updated.

According to the CBC: Officials said the earthquake was too small to trigger a tsunami or cause more than small damage, but aftershocks could be felt in the coming days.
