Common Dandelion – Taraxacum officinale:

This successful immigrant has been planted for food and medicine since ancient times in Europe, China and India. The tender young leaves,rich in vitamins and minerals, make good salad or cooked greens. The delicate yellow flowers can be added to fritters and pancakes or made into wine. Dandelions roots provide a raw or cooked vegtable, a caffeine-free coffee substitute or even a red dye. With age, the plants soon grow bitter; leaves in full sun are especially harsh. Pale plants (like those grown in the shade or buried in sand) and frost-nipped plants are the sweetest. The midly laxative and diuretic leaves have been used in medicinal teas, digestive aids, drinks and rustic beers.
