Dandelion Delight

I went to a friend’s for lunch today and in my honour she cooked a special dish she had seen on the TV on Edible Garden ( see http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00s1lc8).  The recipe is not on the website, but she assures me that it was cooked on the programme.  Dandelion heads cooked in batter – just like elderflowers cooked the same way, you make a light batter using flour, eggs a little milk and fizzy water if you have it, dip the flower heads in and fry immediately in hot butter / oil.  Eat straight away.  Like dandelion everythings it takes time to get used to the slightly bitter taste, but they made a really fun addition to lunch!
