Dandelion Coffee

This is my very scientific experiment on making dandelion coffee. Would be nice if others tried it and shared their experiences.

I measured out 1/2oz. of the root. Since I didn't chop up the root before I dried it, I hammered the chunks in a plastic bag.

Then I put the roots in a pan along with 2 1/4 cups ( I allowed that extra 1/4 cup for evaporation) of water and brought that to a boil. Let it simmer for 15 minutes.

I added some cream and sweetener to the finished product and took a sip. ..... um..........well, number one there is no substitute for coffee. Let's call it a root beverage. It has a slightly bitter after taste that will possibly appeal to my husband. You know, it could grow on you. And knowing dandelion, it could very well take root. Try it and see how you like it.
