Dandelion Pesto

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:

Dandelion Pesto

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!
