This is the peak of the summer and one of best times for picking wild edibles growing around us. One of the most prevalent edibles (and perhaps the most under-appreciated) is the dandelion.
In the previous video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UebH2Pb-18s) Sergei discussed how you can use dandelion greens in smoothies, salads, and other dishes to reap all of their nutritional goodness.

In addition, dandelion flowers help detoxify our inner organs, and alkalize the body. The following†instructional and entertaining video demonstrates three fun ways to eat dandelion flowers.
