Honeyed Dandelion Fritters
By Dani Lind - Summer 2018 Issue
Who knew dandelions, the bane of suburban lawns everywhere, were not only edible but could make such a delicious snack!
Recipe Detail Serves: 4 10 minutes Prep Time, 15 minutes Cook Time
Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. In another larger bowl, whisk together egg, milk, honey, vanilla and spices. Whisk the flour mix into the liquid mix just until smooth.
Pick up each dandelion flower by its base, dip in the batter, and fry flower-side down. Repeat to fill, but not overcrowd, the pan. Flip each fritter once it is golden brown to fry the other side, then remove with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels.
Serve while still warm, drizzled with honey. Try them with vanilla ice cream for an over-the-top treat!
