School has wound down. A bit of math here, lots of reading there, but for the most part we're done and done and done. I mentionned summer school before, and here's a sample of what that means. We're learning about plants and wildcrafting. Right now we're halfway through a unit on dandelions.
We made dandelion pesto. It was quite good, actually. The kids even tasted it.
If you want to take a crack at it, here's the recipe:
2 cups dandelion leaves
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan
Combine the leaves (clean, pesticide free, duh) and the garlic in a food processor. Add the oil and the parmesan and process until it looks like pesto. Serve it on pasta, or crackers.
Couldn't be easier! Very healthy! Yum yum!
