Dandelion Dreams in the Still Room

Spring is here!  At least in my part of the world.  Dandelions are popping up all over the place and I am gathering them when I have opportunity.

Dandelion Pesto is one of the recipes in Alchemy of Herbs, which I just received yesterday.  I'm loving this book so far!  So much herbal information along with lots of recipes makes it a keeper for the still room library.

I'm also planning to infuse dandelion flowers in oil and make Dandelion Salve.

And of course I'll dry leaves for tea, and who knows, maybe I'll collect enough blossoms to make Dandelion Jelly. 

I saw some really cute necklaces on Pinterest made with dandelion seeds.  Little wishes captured beautifully! So many things you can do with a simple dandelion!

How about you?  Do you gather dandelions?  What's your favorite way to use them?
