Violet or nasturtium in a salad or dessert doesn't surprise any more. Russians cook dandelion salads. Would you try it? Do you know that dandelions contain more vitamin A than carrots? It's true! They are also rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, C, E, K and others. Dandelions contain boron, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus. The plant tastes a little bitter, but this bitterness stimulates digestion. In addition, dandelions are full of antioxidants. In Russia, dandelions are usually considered a weed and, when they appear in late spring - early summer, Russians, and those who have dachas especially, begin to struggle with them. Their fears can be understood: Scientists say that one dandelion can produce up to 1,500 seeds. Those who do not kill dandelions, joke that they will make a salad of them.

Whatever compliment is paid though, however much your eaters enthuse and ask you for the recipe, the time spent eating and the joy elicited never seem quite commensurate to the time invested in cooking. All those hours of chopping and slicing and pounding, of braising, boiling and whipping – and that’s just the hands-on part. Think of the time spent fermenting, brining, drying, ageing, the time catching and landing the mackerel, digging and planting and sowing; think of the life the rabbit lived, months or even years before anyone thought of shooting or trapping it. Then, of course, there are the recipes, the stories that … [Read more...] about Thom Eagle on recipe ownership, food compliments and the lack of native ingredients
