I just wanted to do a quick video on making a cup of dandelion "coffee". It's not actually coffee, as the drink has nothing to do with coffee beans. But it is very coffee-like and can be used as a substitute. Plus, it's free and has no caffeine. This is just one method of making a small amount. There are other ways to do it. For instance, if you want to do a whole bunch, it might be wise to use a food processor to grind up the roots and to roast them in the oven. These same methods can be used to make chicory "coffee" too! (using the roots of the blue flowered plants, or chicory, one often sees along highways).
I have a boring blog site too if you are totally bored and want to read stuff: www.archaicarcher.com
