Method

Dandelion is not only good as a salad, but also delicious cooked and used with eggs. The hearts only are used; all the coarser, big leaves should be removed and only a small portion of the root, carefully scraped, left, just enough to keep the small leaves together. They should be well washed, then well dried and treated like buds of salsify or asparagus tips, that is tossed in butter for a few minutes. They can be used in omelettes or scrambled eggs.
