Dandelions and Civilization: A Forgotten History

Dandelions are among the most populous and widespread plants on earth. The secret to their success has to do both with their unique characteristics, and their inextricable connection to humans. The history of humans and dandelions is forever linked in ways that may surprise you.

Here’s an awesome song about dandelions by an artist who happens to be a former student of mine. You can buy his music at the link provided. Really, he is a great guy. https://www.amazon.com/Dandelion-Girl…

  1. I made “golden salt” with dandelion flowers (basically dandelion petals ground together with salt). It gives a slightly bitter taste and summer meadow aroma to the food. I will try the jelly this year.
