Dandelion is often thought of as a common useless weed.  Many bring out the weed killer and wage war on this flower every spring.  Dandelion war wagers might be a little less aggressive if they knew just how beneficial this herb is!

The entire dandelion plant is edible and useful from the root to the pretty yellow top.  It’s a very accessible herb too.  Dandelions grow everywhere!  If you don’t have them growing in your yard, you can easily find them somewhere nearby.  Harvesting this herb and making good use of it will be a great benefit to your family.

Dandelion Root

The root of the dandelion purifies the blood, stimulates the liver, encourages healthy digestion, and stimulates the production of bile, which helps break down fat.  Dig up the roots and chop them into soups or stir-fry meals.
