Stalking Wild Greens: Dandelions

Posted on 31st August 2011 in Wild Edibles

Did you know there are about 300 types of dandelions? And that there are no poisonous look-alikes? How do you tell them apart? Well, one thing is that if  the back of the main stem of the dandelion leaf is smooth rather than hairy or fuzzy, it’s probably a dandelion rather than one of its look-alikes. When I get around to stalking some of my own that will make me feel a whole lot better!

Sergei Boutenko hosts this 3 minute clip about dandelions and ends it with a demonstration of making dandelion pesto. Check it out:
