    Default dandelion coffee

    one thing that was ommitted earlier was that you use the root for coffee.

    "The roots can be dried and roasted to make dandelion coffee. Unlike normal coffee it makes a drink that is naturally caffeine-free but it does have the bitter flavour that stimulates the liver, bile flow and digestion. A great substitute for normal coffee."

    The use of milk and sugar is optional as it is with coffee!!!

    BTW: Dandelion = Dent de Lion = French for lion's teeth (the shape of the leaves)
    Pamela Michael reccomends roasting twice,once in the cut up root stage and again when ground.
    Not being a coffee drinker I've not tried this,
    She also gives a recipe for "cleavers" (goose-grass) seed coffee if anyone would like it.

    Default How to spot Burdock

    Burdock is the plant from which sticky buds come from. They have purplish thistle like flowers and huge (dinner tray sized sometimes) cauliflower like leaves. There are plenty of good pictures available.
