My Father

My father introduced us children to dandelions; he had been introduced to them as a child. Ever since, I like eating dandelions in any form.

Who introduced you to dandelions?
In memory of my father, who died August 11, 2009 at 87 years of age.

    Hello Ruth
    I’m in the U.K.,and am interested in your views re Dandelion’s for medical reasons.
    I wonder how one should take Dandelion if you have cancer.Can the tea version help?,if so is it bitter.
    The process of making the powder seems to take a long time,which if you have cancer you don’t have a lot of.
    I wonder if the capsule version is usefull?
    Thanks and kind regards

    Dear Ruth,
    This is a lovely website, my mother introduced me to dandelions, how fun they were to blow the seed heads! I have been juicing dandelions and making salads with them but only on occasion. One year, I grew a dozen French dandelions, purchased from a local nursery and ate them daily. I pulled them out completely before they went to seed. Now I’m going to try the wild ones growing in my organic garden which is seven years pesticide free! tomorrow will be the day of my first harvest – I will try your technique with leaving some root in place in order to get many more. They are in the perfect spot for propagation!
    By the way, your 21 day diet page is not loading …does it feature consuming large quantities of dandelion over 21 days?

    My grandparents used to go and pick dandelions outside of the city in the spring, huge bags of them! Then they used to clean them and freeze them for use all year long. Dandelions were almost a daily sidedish at my grandparents house. I didn’t understand why they did this but now I do. They were of Italian background.
