Dandelions & Delicious Dandelion Fritter Recipe

Dandelions & Delicious Dandelion Fritter Recipe Dandy-fritters-1





Imagine you are moving to a new world, leaving behind everything you know and love for life in an unknown country.

If possible, you’d probably want to bring along favorite foods and
most-used medicines. What would those be for you? Tomatoes? Pumpkins?
Antibiotics? Dandelions?

Four hundred years ago Europeans were making those same big decisions
as they left all they knew behind for life in the “new world”. Some
couldn’t bear to leave their favorite plants and so they intentionally
brought seeds to plant in their new home.

It’s ironic to me that dandelions were once so cherished that people
intentionally brought them across the ocean so they would not be
separated from them. But then fast forward a few hundred years later and
now many people in North America poison dandelion with chemicals to
discourage its abundance in their pure grass lawns.

Strange how things turn out, huh?

Luckily, many of us are waking up to the generosity of this bountiful
plant. Every part of the plant can be used as food and as medicine. It
is an effective medicine for many conditions, yet safe for practically
everyone to use.

The best news is that it probably grows abundantly near you, making it accessible and cheap too!

But today’s newsletter isn’t about the amazing virtues of dandelion.
It’s not about how nutritious dandelion is or about how it can be used
as a powerful medicine. No, today’s recipe is all about junk food. Wild
food junk food.

Okay, okay, as far as “junk” goes, this is actually pretty healthy
and still very tasty. But you won’t be thinking of that as you pop these
crispy fritters into your mouth.

Before we get to our wild junk food recipe here are a few tips for identifying and harvesting dandelion flowers.

Identifying Dandelion Flowers

You are probably familiar with dandelion flowers. The yellow
inflorescence can carpet lawns in the spring (a welcome sight from the
repetitive green if you ask me).

However, there are a few other plants out there that resemble
dandelion. There are a few ways to tell true dandelions from other
plants.

First, dandelion leaves are completely smooth without any coarse hairs.

Another way to ensure you have the right plant is
that each flower is attached to one stalk (as opposed to many flowers
coming from one stalk).

Dandelion flowers



Hawkweed (Hieracium spp) is often mistaken for dandelion. The flowers do look very similar but the big difference is the many flowers per one stalk.

How to harvest the best flowers

Here are my tips for harvesting the best dandelion flowers for your fritters.


  1. Harvest in an area that has not been sprayed with chemicals. Also look for an area not frequented by dogs and cats.
  2. Make sure you are 100% positive you are harvesting dandelion flowers.
  3. Harvest flowers in the later morning to early afternoon on a sunny
    day when the flowers are fully open. The best flowers look vibrant, not
    discolored, old or limp. They should be free of dew.
  4. Use the flowers immediately after harvesting. If you store them in
    the fridge they will close up. If you dry them they will go to seed.
  5. To prepare the dandelion flowers for fritters, first remove the bracts found underneath the flowers. (They are a bit bitter.)

need to be removed before eating.

to taste) plus 1/2 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons total of the following
