Dandelion Tea – #fanfun

For fans of the Memory House Series you know about Ophelia and her apothecary and how Annie takes that over. Hmmm I might be writing a new story about Annie…

If you’re a fan of that series you also know about Dandelion Tea. Spring is coming soon so let’s plan to make some… This blog by OmGirl has a lot of great ideas.

First pick your dandelions and wash them in a vinegar and water mixture for a few minutes and then rinse them off. Let the flowers steep in hot water for 20 minutes (that’s a lot longer than regular tea). Then strain the flowers out or according to OmGirl you can even eat them!

You can even use the leaves for tea, or eat them in a salad or saute them! Apparently they have more nutrients then spinach and carrots.

OmGirl even loves the roots. She gives the recipe for making coffee from the roots but you have to wash them really, really well. I’ve even heard you can peel the outer layer off and cook them like a carrots.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
