This week I’m not going to be blogging very much myself, so I’ve arranged for a couple of guest blogs this week from my friends!! Indra is a good friend of mine, and writes The Blog of an Amateur Gardener, and would like to share her recipe for revenge on the dandelion!!!

___________________________________________________________

Ok, so guest blogging! Well, I’m Indra and I’m a gardener, and I did some baking and this crossed over our blogs, so here I am! *waves*

So, what have I been doing? Well, I have been eating dandelions, of course! Yes, people those annoying weeds are edible!
You can eat the leaves, however this is not the time of the year to be nomming down on them, they are terribly bitter at the moment. However, you can eat the flowers. They can be pulled apart and sprinkled on salads, or you can make fritters from them. But how do I do this Indra? Well, you follow this recipe, of course 😀
Remember to try and pick your dandelions from areas away from pollution and dog wee!

Dandelion Fritters

Ingredients :

  • 55g /2oz flour (gluten free can be made from a mix of cornflour, gram flour and rice flour, using a 1:1:1 ratio)
  • dandelion flowers
  • 1 egg beaten
  • pinch of salt
  • water
  • butter/marg, for frying

Method :

  1. Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl and stir in the beaten egg to form a stiff thick dough like batter.
  2. Slowly add the water a little at a time, stirring well each time, until it goes to a thin batter
  3. Heat butter/marg in frying pan.
  4. Dip the flowers into the batter, and fry in pan until golden brown.
  5. Serve.

18:38 : No, steak and chips ISN’T fancy enough. I mean, I could go for a big ol’ fuck off steak right now, but at a meal like that, no, jazz it up, and that doesn’t mean just cooking it in a water bath, you cock.

18:40 : Eliminating your opponents via blowing them up is frowned upon, I think

18:54 : A purist wouldn’t call that a Scotch Pie, because it’s not 95% gristle

18:58 : Right, now I can go get something to eat
