It’s springtime on the homestead, and along with spring come spring flowers, including, the ever so abundant and humble, dandelion.

Dandelions are actually an herb, also referred to by their Botanical Latin name of Taraxacum-officinale.

My grandma would gather us up as kids and we’d head outside with our little garden tools and pick dandelion greens and flowers (before they went to seed), and we’d dig up the dandelion roots.

This was done first thing in the morning before the dew had time to dry off of the dandelions.

Grandma said that the dandelions were fresher when picked at this time of day. I sometimes wondered if it was just a way to get us up and moving on an early Saturday morning.

Bees will adore dining on dandelions after a harsh winter. From the roots to the blossoms, the dandelion has a myriad of benefits for the homesteader, the bees, and the birds that collect pollen.

Before you turn your back on your dandelion crop, read these great recipes and learn more about your dandelion crop. Here’s how to start your journey to dandelion recipes.

Cautions

Dandelions work well as a diuretic, a laxative, and are full of nutrients. It’s important to note that combined with the wrong medications, the consumption of dandelion products could be problematic for you.

If you’re on any kind of pharmaceutical medication, be sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist before consuming any products with dandelions in them to avoid any serious side effects.

First, always ensure that the dandelions that you’re going to be collecting are free from pesticides and other chemical products.

This includes exhaust fumes, if you have a dandelion crop that is near a roadway, err on the side of caution and don’t choose those for your harvest.

You don’t want to spray them or apply any chemicals to the dandelions that you’re going to be using in your recipes.

You can’t wash these pesticides off so be sure that your source for dandelions are chemical free.

Health Benefits Of Dandelions

The humble dandelion is full of calcium which is an essential mineral that is important for the growth of bones as well as the strength.

Dandelions are also full of antioxidants and luteolin. This will help to protect your bones from damage related to aging.

Dandelions are also good as a liver cleanse. They can aid in proper digestion and reduce the risk of gastrointestinal conditions. They treat hemorrhaging in the liver as well, and they maintain the proper bile flow.

Dandelions also help to stimulate the liver to function more properly. By helping to cleanse the liver, dandelions can also work to treat jaundice conditions.

Dandelion juice works to help produce insulin. They help to maintain the levels of blood sugar. Naturopaths often use dandelions in diabetes treatment.

If you’re already on an insulin product, be sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist before you use any dandelion products.

You don’t want to have issues with your medications interacting with your dandelions. This could be potentially dangerous to your health condition.

Dandelions are a natural diuretic that helps to increase urine flow and remove excess fluids as well as sugar from the consumer’s body.

For this reason, they are also frequently used by naturopaths to help with urinary tract conditions.

They can eliminate the deposits of toxic components in the urinary tract as well as the kidney and they act as a disinfectant so they can help to reduce the microbial growth in the urinary tract system.

Skin conditions can be treated with the sap of dandelions. The sap of the dandelion is full of alkaline as well as insecticidal and fungicides.

It also works as a germicide and will help to reduce conditions such as acne, eczema, rashes, and hormonal conditions that are frequently seen as a side effect of store-bought skin care products.

If you’re trying to lose weight, dandelion tea may well help you in your endeavor.

Since dandelions are a diuretic, you’ll lose more fluids and water which can cause you to feel fat and bloated. It can regulate blood sugar and give you the sensation of being full more quickly.

Dandelions are infused with plenty of antioxidants as well as Vitamin C and luteolin, the dandelion can also reduce free radicals which can cause cancer.

Thus dandelions may lower the risk of cancer and may help to protect the body from cancer and tumors.

Luteolin works to poison the components that work in cancer cells that infiltrate the body thus making them ineffective and stopping their reproduction.

Full of nutrients and iron, they can also help to regulate your levels of iron and prevent anemia. Naturopaths often use dandelion products to help treat anemia.

Those who struggle with high blood pressure will find that if the doctor has prescribed a diuretic the dandelion juice works in the same fashion to drain the water off of the body.

Always check with the doctor if you’re already on a diuretic and plan to consume dandelion products as you may be overdoing your diuretics.

Collecting Your Dandelions

If you’re blessed to have an exuberant toddler that loves to pick flowers for mom or grandma, you may be able to sit back and relax as you already have a dandelion collector in your midst. If not, here’s how to go about picking your dandelions:

  1. Always pick where the dandelions haven’t been sprayed. Avoid roadways and areas where any pesticides may have been sprayed.
  2. Pick your flowers early in the morning while the dew is still on your flowers.
  3. If you’re making “fritters” be sure to pick longer-stemmed dandelions.
  4. Harvest the greens as well, they make great stir fry’s and salad fixings.
  5. Dig a root or so for some dandelion root coffee.

Never take all of the dandelions, the bees need some too so be sure that you leave them a few.

Remember too that you can dry dandelions so if you don’t have a bumper crop simply collect what you can and dry them by laying them on a piece of newsprint and then removing the petals after they’ve dried.

Store them in a clean dry jar and add to this until you have enough to make your favorite recipes.

If you go out every few days to harvest dandelions you’ll have plenty of dandelions in just a few days to last you all year long. Just keep drying them until you have a steady supply and you’re good to go.

Dandelions will continue to grow back so always leave a few that you allow going to “seed”.

These will continue to regenerate more dandelions in your yard and you can continue harvesting them throughout the season.

If you prefer, just fence off a section of your yard and encourage the dandelions to grow there, and pull the rest.

Save what you pull and use the roots for coffee and the leaves for salads and fried dandelion greens.

Remember, if you let them go to seed they will float away on the wind and regenerate in other areas of your homestead so you’ll have to be diligent in clearing those other areas.

Favorite Dandelion Recipes

My grandmother made dandelion “everything”. We had dandelion tea, coffee, salads, fried dandelion greens, dandelion bread, fritters, muffins (both sweet and savory), pancakes, syrup, honey, butter, and oh so much more.

My grandmother never let anything go to waste and the lowly dandelion was high on her list of must-have herbs on the table.

As a child, I didn’t think anything of this, today, as an adult. I admire her tenacity and the fact that when she had little, she made it look like she had so very much by simply using what she had at hand.

Grandma was very creative and we used everything that we had and it always looked like so much.

Today, I am reminded that it doesn’t take a lot to live life large. It only takes some ingenuity and creativity.

1. Grandmas Dandelion Herb Tea

Grandma had a teapot that had a “steeper” that would hold the herbs for steeping. If you don’t have one of these, you may wish to have some cheese cloth to tie your herbs in and place them into a pan on the stove.

You could also use a tea steeper spoon or bobble. All of these work well to steep your dandelion tea.

There was just something about relaxing in grandma’s kitchen over a mug of dandelion tea.

That soothing aroma would assail my nostrils and today, when I sit back with a mug of dandelion tea I mentally picture grandma there in front of me with her sweet words of wisdom regarding whatever we were discussing at the time.

Personally, I think that the dandelion root tea tastes more like coffee and I like mine with some creamer, but you may enjoy yours simply brewed up in a steaming mug. Either way, it does wonders for your health.

2. Dandelion Strawberry Smoothie

There’s nothing quite like a smoothie to enjoy on a hot afternoon on the homestead. We’ve adapted our favorite smoothie recipe and come up with a new favorite.

Here’s a recipe to get you started but remember, on the homestead you can always improvise and use whatever fruit is in season.

We’ve been known to create our own unique versions of smoothie recipes but this is the basic one that we add to or take away from when we’re in a smoothie mood on the homestead.

3. Dandelion Lemon Or Lime Aid

Grandma had a solution for everything. When the dandelions were too prolific in her yard she would make all sorts of great recipes including Dandelion Lemon or Lime Aid.

We loved it as kids and little did we know that she was getting more vitamin C into our little bodies by serving up this delicious taste treat.

Instead of a sugary artificially flavored drink mix, grandma had her own recipe and we loved it.

It just wasn’t a trip to grandmas unless we had some of her dandelion lemon or lime aid. A nice refreshing taste treat on a hot summer day and it’s really inexpensive to make.

It’s also an ideal way to boost your vitamin C intake and to make use of that obnoxious weed in your yard.

Frozen Dandelion ice trays make a unique twist for this dandelion lemon or lime aid. Simply place dandelion flowers into water in the ice trays and freeze.

Add this ice to the pitcher when making the lemon or lime aid. We thought this was really cool as kids.

4. Dandelion Wine

If you’re more into soothing spirits, you may wish to consider some dandelion wine.

While drinking alcohol was frowned upon for the ladies in the 1800s and early 1900s, the Dandelion wine was considered medicinal so it was often a go-to beverage for over-stressed ladies who just needed a little something to help ease their woes.

It was also good for the kidneys and liver as a tonic so it was often prescribed for strictly medicinal purposes.

5. Spicy Dandelion Greens

My kids love dandelion greens and we’ve come up with some great recipes besides eating them in salads.

Simply collect your dandelion greens, rinse well and fry them up just like you would fry up spinach or collard greens.

Add some onion, garlic, and bacon and serve them up with some butter or organic vinegar and you have a nice green vegetable to add to your meal.

Here’s the recipe.

6. Dandelion Fritters

If you’ve gathered more dandelions than you intended, your kids are going to love this one. Leave the long stems on your dandelions. Gently rinse the dandelions in chilled water and gently pat dry on a paper towel.

Dip your dried dandelions into your favorite pancake batter or waffle batter and hold them in oil so that the battered flower portion is just covered.

Serve as a hors d’oeuvre and allow kids to dip them in either honey, cinnamon and sugar, or some fresh basil if they prefer more of a seasoned dandelion fritter.

They could also dip them into applesauce or jelly or even ranch dressing. Kids love to dip and this is a fun way to get some vitamins into kids and let them snack on something unusual.

Here’s the recipe.

7. Dandelion Bread or Muffins

Dandelion bread or muffins are a nice addition to that dandelion tea that you are serving up. There’s nothing like a little pick-me-up snack in the afternoon between lunch and dinner.

Slather on some butter and honey and you have a delicious taste treat that will fill you up and add some health benefits to your diet.

Here’s the recipe.

8. Dandelion Bitters

If you’re into alcoholic drinks or if you have a delicate digestive system due to eating a larger meal, you may wish to try some bitters.

There are a lot of great recipes out there for bitters. Just make sure that you choose pesticide-free dandelions for your bitters.

9. Dandelion Honey/Jelly

I was actually making dandelion jelly, but my kids told me this is more like honey. So we call it dandelion honey in our house. It looks and tastes just like honey.

With a few simple changes to your ingredients, you can make one or the other or both honey and jelly.

This “honey” is ideal as a pancake syrup or waffle syrup, on toast, over anything you’d normally put honey or syrup on, and even stirred into your coffee. We use it on our dandelion muffins and it’s delicious.

On a side note, grandma also told us to take a teaspoon or so of Dandelion honey if we had a cough or cold or if our allergies were acting up.

It seemed to help and we didn’t get sick too terribly often so there may be something to it and it’s definitely worth considering.

If you wish to process these, do so in a water bath canner for 10 minutes. Ours are never on hand long enough to need to be processed in this fashion but if you do process them, be sure to write the date on the top so that you know when they were processed.

10. Dandelion Flower Vinegar

Infuse your favorite vinegar with dandelions for a unique flavor addition. Using jelly jars fill the jars ¾ of the way with vinegar and then stuff the rest of the jar full of dandelion greens, flowers, and roots.

Allow this to steep for several weeks and then strain the dandelion greens, flowers, and roots out of the vinegar mix. We use only Organic vinegar with the “mother” in it.

Use in recipes that you would normally use vinegar in. You can also ingest 1 tablespoon of this per day to aid in digestion and help with arthritis pain.

This is ideal to serve with those dandelion greens that we fried up above.

11. Dandelion Flower Cookies

This is an excellent recipe for Dandelion Flower Cookies. It walks you through the entire process of making your dandelion cookies.

Ideal for those summertime tea parties with the kids. For a unique look, halfway through the baking, remove the pan from the oven and place a dandelion head face up on each cookie.

You could also place a few petals on the tops in lieu of an entire dandelion head. Return to the oven to continue baking. Cool and serve with dandelion tea for a fun tea party.

12. Dandelion And Lemon Biscuit/Cookies

If you prefer a more lemony flavor to your cookies, you may wish to try this recipe. These are ideal to serve for an afternoon tea or brunch and they store well if you wish to save a few for another day. Don’t forget to save a few dandelion petals to place on the tops of your biscuits/cookies as decoration.

13. Dandelion Banana Bread

We’ve tried this a few times and with great results. Dandelion banana bread is a delicious treat anytime of the day but we like it warmed up and served with some dandelion honey for our breakfast.

Our advice is to make a few loaves at a time, they freeze well and they’re a huge hit with the younger set so you’ll want to have plenty on hand once they discover how yummy this is.

14. Cauliflower Dandelion Soup

I’ll admit I was hesitant when grandma made cauliflower dandelion soup. It just didn’t quite sound as appetizing as grandma wanted it to sound. But, once I tried it, I was hooked.

If you’re swimming in dandelions and desperate for some unique recipes. This one will give the kids a nice green soup to sip on and your friends something interesting to talk about at your next soup supper.

15. Dandelion Oil

In a clean dry canning jar pour in your favorite oil. We like olive oil but you can use any oil of choice. Fill the jar about 2/3 to ¾ full of the oil. Stuff as many dandelion petals, and greens, into the oil as you can fit.

We usually get 2 or more cups into ours. Seal the jar by placing the lid on the jar and place it in a cool dark place for 2 weeks.

Strain the petals and greens out of the oil, and use the dandelion oil in recipes as desired or for regular cooking.

Not only will the dandelion-infused oil offer up some health benefits, but it will also add some more subtle flavor to the foods that are cooked in it.

16. Dandelion Pain Oil

There are quite a few different versions of pain oil out there. If you have a favorite pain oil you can also add some dandelion greens to your pain oil to enhance its quality.

If you don’t have any pain oil you can make your own by infusing your dandelions with some coconut oil or olive oil and then straining them out after they’ve steeped for a few days.

Many people add in some hot peppers as well to add to the pain relief. However, you choose to make your dandelion pain oil, remember that less is more and start with a small batch.

Be sure that you make notes so that when you find the recipe that works best for you it’s able to be duplicated when you run out.

Here’s how to make it.

17. Dandelion Lotion Bars

Those hard-working hands on the homestead deserve a nice lotion. Gardening, homestead chores, and other daily tasks can take a toll on the skin and cause dry cracked, or even swollen areas.

Finding something quick and easy to soothe those skin irritations can make the difference between a comfortable day on the homestead and a miserable one.

We make our own version of dandelion lotion bars on the homestead. By combining dandelion sap with our favorite oils we then dry the bars and use them on a daily basis to help soothe irritated skin, eczema, rashes, and other skin conditions including acne.

We also add in plenty of the pretty dandelion flowers and some of the greens to make the lotion bar look pretty, but you can strain those out if you prefer.

We keep several dandelion lotion bars in and around the homestead and we even have a few bars stashed away in the barn for those days that our hands are irritated while we’re out working in the barn.

Here’s the recipe.

18. Dandelion Greens With Bacon and Raisins

Many people are put off by the bitter taste of dandelion greens. One way to combat this is to pair them with sweet ingredients, such as raisins and bacon.

The sweetness of the raisins helps to offset the bitterness of the greens, while the bacon adds a delicious smoky flavor.
