Apple Dandelion Fritters!

April 10, 2011

Don’t kill your dandelions, fry them! If you have sprayed chemicals all over your dandelions because you were brainwashed into thinking they are bad, bad weeds then you will have to miss out on these delicious Springtime delicacies. Ha! However, if your yard is wild and pollutant-free and ugly like mine, then you are in luck!

apple dandelion fritters


diced apples, 1 handful

dandelions, 1 handful freshly foraged

egg, 1

flour, 1 cup

milk, 1/2 cup

applesauce, 1/2 cup

cinnamon, 1 dash

oil for frying

syrup or honey for dipping

powdered sugar for sprinkling

Step 1: Send kid to pick the flower parts off the dandelions while you cut up apples and measure out ingredients. Pull the yellow petals out of the rest of the green part of the flower for this recipe. The green can be kinda bitter, which I think is great for more savory recipes, but not so much for this sweeter one.

Step 2: Mix everything together. Batter should be thicker than pancake batter, but not as thick as biscuit dough. Ya hear me? Then drop it by the spoonful into hot oil. I use a medium-low heat.

Step 3: Fry for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until beautiful and golden.

Step 4: Sprinkle with powdered sugar, dip in syrup or drizzle with honey.

Step 5: Now EAT!

Num num,
