Dandelions: Can't beat 'em? Eat 'em! A quick and recipe using Dandelion flowers. Make sure the place where you get your Dandelions hasn't been sprayed with any chemicals. You need the yellow flowers, not the white round ones. Cut at the stem right below the flower head. Rinse them in water. Two cups isn't really a lot because the flowers shrink when you cook them. If you want you can also add pieces of meat such as ham or sausage. Enjoy!
