Dandelion Root Organic
To prepare a cup of dandelion tea, simply pour one cup of boiling water over 2 teaspoons of dried leaves and let steep for 3-7 minutes. This is a very bitter tea, so sweetener may be desired. To use the roots, spread the chopped root on a baking sheet and roast in the oven at 350 F for about two hours (making sure not to burn) until they feel crispy and have a pleasant roasted aroma. They can be ground in a food processor to be used as a coffee substitute or left in chunks and steeped in boiling water. Dandelion leaves can also be used in soups, sandwiches, salads, and stir-fries.
