The German response to rocket salad - aromatic leaves and sweetish blossoms



The up to 30 cm tall plant with its characteristic, lion's teeth-like leaves is known to every child. Dandelion can be found widely spread, but because of the environmental pollutions, it shouldn't be harvested just anywhere. Especially with Dandelion, it is highly recommendable to cultivate your own plant at home. In tub cultivation, you should preferably pick a tall pot, as the plant develops strong tap roots.

In the kitchen: Dandelion has quite a long growing period that reaches from March until autumn. The best times for harvesting are April to May for the leaves, April to June for the flowers, and May to June for the seeds. The roots are good to harvest in early autumn or during spring. The flowers come with a somewhat sweetish taste and make for a beautiful and edible garnish. It's also possible to make a Dandelion jam or syrup from the flowers. The leaves have a rather tart and spicy taste, and the older they are, the more bitters they contain. Therefore, you should preferably use the younger leaves. Dandelion can be the main ingredient or an admixture in salads, as well as in pesto, smoothies, vegetable stews, risotto and casseroles. Dandelion leaves are very delicious as a salad together with other aromatic herbs like basil, lemon balm or even thyme, and some slightly roasted walnuts, pine nuts or hazelnuts. Dandelion is also an intense aromatic alternative choice to basil pesto. For this kind of preparation the fresh leaves are to be crushed in a mortar together with a good oil and some roasted pine nuts. Finally, you blend this mixture with Pecorino cheese and a little bit of salt.

Natural Location: Dandelion originally came from western Asia. On the southern hemisphere it can be found only sparsely.

Cultivation: The best time for propagation is starting in February at a sunny place indoors as the seed is a light germinator. Scatter the seeds onto moist coconut substrate or organic herbal soil and slightly press them on. Cover the seed container with clear film to prevent the soil from drying out, but don't forget to make some holes in the clear film and take it every second or third day completely off for about 2 hours. That way you avoid mold formation on the potting compost. Place the seed container somewhere bright and warm with a temperature between 20°C and 25° Celsius and keep the surface of the earth moist, but not wet (ideally using a water sprayer). Depending on the propagation temperature the first seedlings will come up after two to five weeks. Seedlings that are already raised indoors can be planted out with beginning of May. As soon as there is no more night frost expected, you can move the seedling with its complete root ball, to avoid stress for the plant.

Place: The plant needs the sun, warmth and a wind-sheltered place to produce its full aroma.

Care: Keep the soil always moist, but not wet. Water your plant as soon as the top layer of the earth has dried out. Fertilize the plant either very modest with compost or organic fertilizer for herbs, or don't fertilize at all.

During Winter: Dandelion is frost-hard and doesn't need any special care during the winter.
