  2. OOO "Sad"

    Many anxiously await when weed control begins, which inevitably attacks our beds. I look forward to it with impatience. Indeed, many of the weeds are simply a storehouse of vitamins and literally priceless for health. And the very first - dandelion.

    In some countries, this plant was awarded a loud title "yellow ginseng." And he deserved this title by right. If you look at its composition, it turns out that the plant is literally filled with vitamins and minerals. From it I cook delicious and healthy dishes. So we combine the weeding with the harvest of the vitamin crop. Here are the recipes 2 salads that I cook.
    May salad
    Finely chop 100 of dandelion leaves, the same amount of green onion feathers and 50 of parsley, add chopped boiled egg. Add salt and sour cream. To add an interesting flavor add 1 tsp. sugar, diluted with 5% vinegar.

    In a salad dandelion leaves must be taken before the end of flowering, while they contain the most nutrients. It is best to use the earliest spring leaves, which are gentle and have practically no characteristic bitterness. If you want to cook a salad with dandelions in summer, then to remove the bitter taste, you should soak the leaves for several hours in plain or half an hour in lightly salted water.

    Salad "Vitamin Explosion"
    Required: 200 g nettle, 100 g sorrel, 20 g flowers and leaves of dandelion, 10 g plantain leaves, 10 g green onions, 1 egg.
    Mix all the ingredients, grind in a meat grinder, mix well, then add the chopped boiled egg. Season the salad with vegetable oil, put in a slide in a dish and decorate with circles of radish (if it is ripe by this time). Salt and spices to taste.

Then strain and immediately spray those plants that are affected by aphids and ticks. The first time this is done before flowering, the second - after it.

    Dandelion "honey" with their own hands

    At the time of flowering dandelions, and it is already coming, I always prepare a useful restorative remedy, which I advise all readers. Of course, you only need to collect flowers in places where there is no soil and air pollution.
    It is best to do this at noon on a sunny day.
    At this time, the inflorescence is very well revealed.
    To prepare the medicine will need about 500 flowers, 0,5 l of boiling water, 1 kg of sugar, 2 lemon, 20 fresh cherry leaves.
    Inflorescences well rinse with cold water, discarded in a colander and allowed to drain. Then inflorescences, cherry leaves and grated lemons (without pits) on the large grater should be placed in the same bowl that is used for cooking the jam, pour boiling water and cook for 15 minutes, then let 12 hr.

    Then it is necessary to crush everything with a stick to the state of gruel, strain through gauze and squeeze well. The resulting liquid should be poured into the jam for cooking jam, bring to a boil, add sugar and cook on low heat, removing the foam, about an hour.
    The finished product has a golden yellow color, which makes it look like a natural honey bee. It is perfectly stored at room temperature.

    Dandelion "honey" when taken indoors no 1 tsp. In the morning, it positively influences immunity, fights inflammatory processes of any organs, promotes elimination of toxins, sand from the gallbladder, dissolves stones in the kidneys, prevents liver disease, normalizes body temperature and stabilizes the pressure.

    At my dacha, however, like many, a dandelion grows. Of course, I fight with him, but where he does not interfere, I do not touch, because dandelion is a medicinal plant.
    In the spring, as soon as dandelion greens appear, I use it for salad preparation (with onion feathers, garlic greens, lobster and dandelion), previously soaked in salted water. For medicinal purposes, young leaves are cut off, washed and dried in the shade, in a well-ventilated place. I apply from anemia: 1 tsp. leaves pour
    1 a glass of boiling water, I insist, filter and drink 3 times a day.

    When the dandelion starts to bloom, I tear flowers (200 pcs.) And cook honey, which normalizes the pressure and strengthens the immune system. Inflorescences are flooded with salted water for a day. Then I pour out the water and press the flowers. Fill 1 with a glass of water and boil 20 min. on low heat, add sugar (0,5 kg), 1 lemon, grated with skin. I bring to a boil and cook 5 min. I strain the syrup and boil it for another couple of minutes. I pour hot into jars.

For this 1 art. spoon of crushed roots pour 1 glass of hot water, boil over moderate heat 15 minutes, strain and drink on 1 / 2 glass 3 times a day for 15 minutes before eating.

    On dry scalp, oil from fresh dandelion flowers works very well. I pour 0.5 l of sunflower oil in enameled dishes and boil in a water bath 10 minutes. Then close the lid tightly, let stand and pour into a clean glass jar. I'm adding 6 art. spoons of fresh dandelion flowers in a jar with sunflower oil. I close the lid, shake it and put it
    8 is a dark place for 2 of the week. Before washing my head, I divide my hair into strands and wipe the skin with a cotton swab dipped in dandelion oil. I tie my head with a towel and after 40 minutes I wash the oil with shampoo for dry hair. And that the hair became fluffy and shiny, in the final stage after washing, I rinse them with acidified water (1 a spoonful of vinegar for 3 l of water).

    Dandelion as a vegetable
    I heard that you can cook a lot of dandelion. But this "vegetable" in each cottage is a lot.

    • Anna

      We have already said more than once that cooking is not our profile, we only touch casually! Therefore it is very short.
      First of all - young leaves, fresh in salads, cooked and stewed - as a component of soups and a full seasoning for fish and meat.
      To remove bitterness, large-sliced ​​leaves are kept for at least half an hour in a strong solution of the sop, and then rinsed. Roots for this 10 minutes are boiled in salted water. Then they are dried and fried, and completely dried serve as raw material for surrogate coffee (not bad for taste!).
      Buds of a dandelion pickle, it turns out something like a kind of capers, from the opened flowers cook jam or squeeze out juice from them and ferment them on wine.
      Dandelion is much more than rich, but collects a lot of harmful substances in the city, along roads and near dumps - keep in mind! In general, it is very useful for many problems of the gastrointestinal tract, liver. And healthy - just delicious!

    What is a dandelion honey, everyone knows, probably. I keep it ready for the winter. But once I thought: why only dandelions? There are so many other flowering and no less useful plants around.
    I cook honey from lingonberry and strawberry flowers, rosehip buds, willow-tea flowers, Kuril tea, white and red clover (white cleanses the blood and boosts immunity, and red - an antitumor agent), cucumbers and zucchini hollow (and why not? ), and, of course, from dandelions.
    The recipe for all types of raw materials is one: a liter jar of flowers, not ramming, pour 1 l of cold water for 2 hours. Then I bring everything to the boil and cook 10 min.
    When the mixture has cooled to room temperature, squeeze, strain and add 1 kg of sugar. I cook on slow heat for another 30 min., At the very end I add juice of half-lemon. I poured into a sterile container and corked. Of course, there is practically no vitamins in such "honey", but there are a lot of other useful substances! A liter bottle of our family of three people is enough for a month.
    By the way, I do not cook honey from the flowers of the sweet clover, as it is toxic in large quantities, and the risk of overdose is high.
