Description

These dandelion greens are picked as whole crowns so as to include the crunchy leaf bases. They add texture as well as an excellent earthy bitterness to any meal.

Produced in:

Kent

Forager says

In Europe dandelion leaves are commonly eaten, as they were in Britain in earlier centuries. They seem to be having something of a resurgence of late – reappearing on restaurant menus around the country. Their roots can go as deep as four feet, mining the soil for nutrients, which is reflected in the nutritional richness of the leaves: high in vitamins A & C, calcium and many other micronutrients.

Storage Information and Shelf-life

Dandelion leaves can be kept for 4-5 days in the fridge. Wash before use.

Cooking Instructions

These can be eaten raw or cooked. One tasty way is to slice, lightly saute, and use in place of spinach in omelettes, or once sauteed pair with white beans in stews or warm salads. To eat raw, as with any other bitter ingredient the trick is to combine with some or all of the following: acidity, salt (& other strong flavours), blandness, fat & sweetness. So making a salad with several other ingredients falling into these categories plus a good dressing- which is both acid and fatty- will make the bitter note of the dandelion a delightful harmony with the rest of the recipe.

Meet Forager

Canterbury, Kent

In 2003 French chef Blaise Vasseur, having witnessed the influence of wild plants on his native cuisine through chefs such as Michel Bras, asked Forager founder Miles Irving to supply wild plants to the newly opened Goods Shed in Canterbury. This spark ignited a wild food renaissance in the UK. Now, 14 years on, a team of highly skilled foragers are hand-picking wild flavours at their peak, full of vitality which speak of the season. This is ‘hyper-seasonality’- a step up from seasonal eating of farmed produce! With over a decade's experience of supplying the best chefs in the UK, you can expect wild ingredients of the highest possible quality delivered to your doorstep to enrich and enliven your meals. By pairing these super-nutritious and flavoursome wild ingredients with the skills and knowledge possessed by talented chefs, these overlooked treasures have been elevated and put back on our plates.
