    This foraging recipe for dandelions is a really simple dish that lets you enjoy the health benefits of the edible flowers in a fritter batter. Eat plain or drizzle with maple syrup, honey, or even roll them in icing sugar while they are still warm. Edible dandelion flowers are a fabulous way to add a touch of wild to your meal! Dandelions have a long list of health benefits. I’m not a doctor so I’ll let you research that yourself but they’re they’re supposed to help reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and they contain plenty of potent antioxidents!
