French for wet-the-bed (for which I have been informed it is a cure) a.k.a. dandelions. The first ones have shown themselves in all their bright yellow glory.

It actually is supposed to be a plant with a lot of medicinal uses from a blood tonic to liver detoxifier/cleanser to a diuretic. It's also supposed to have a lot of potassium, be a good laxitive and stimulate the appetite.

I've tried in the past, unsuccessfully, to make dandelion wine but I've also wondered about eating dandelion greens. Since we do not put chemicals on our lawn it might be something to try. Anyone have any good recipes?
