How to make Homemade Dandelion Coffee
Coffee prices are on the rise so why not save some money and substitute your regular coffee with some roasted and ground dandelion root.
Dandelion is a common weed in most lawns. By picking the roots and grinding them, you get a weed free lawn and a tasty caffeine free coffee like beverage.
First, pick and scrub the whole root. Then, place the dandelion root into a food processor to chop it up. Next, place the chopped root evenly on a cooking sheet and place in the oven at 230° for one hour to dry them out. Finally, increase the temperature up to 350° and roast them, stirring about every 20 minutes. They are done when little wisps of smoke rise off the roots.
