So many dandelions in the field. From early Spring until Autumn, you can harvest dandelions. During Winter, you can harvest its root and dehydrate or roast.
Dandelion is a powerful booster for digestion system and also a good booster for liver function. In Asia, we eat bitter wild edible plants when our spirits tend to fly away as we believed that the bitter taste would help our spirits to come back to the earth.
Bitter taste will help to produce more saliva and encourage other organs to work in balance. And it is a powerful diuretic so that body promotes more urine to pass the toxin. The most fascinating thing about Nature is that everything is so well made. As this plant has the quality of diuretic( means we pass out potassium with urine.), it has a good amount of potassium to replace.
So enjoy your walk with the dog and hunt some beautiful dandelions!
