Dandelion Coffee

I've been drinking dandelion coffee for years now and heartily recommend a daily cuppa to any of my peops needing some liver support. The liver does a myriad of things including clearing the blood of toxins and nasty chemicals. So yep it certainly earns it's keep, being bombarded left right and centre with toxins from air, food and water, never mind medications and cleaning products. Dandelions are rich in vitamins and minerals, trace minerals and micronutrients.  In my garden I've been leaving all the dandelions alone, resisting the urge to pull them out whilst weeding, with a mind to harvesting the roots and making my own coffee. Two year old plants harvested autumn/early winter are best as the roots are larger, tastier and more nutrient dense.
