As a lovely side dish it just does not get any more pretty and tasty.. but its also a amazing way to introduce the wonderful slightly bitter free growing green the Dandelion to those that are unsure..
Corn, Bacon and Dandelion Greens.
Farmgal Recipe was one of my huge bacon slices, diced, one massive washed and diced Dandelion greens (no flowers or buds) and one Pint of Sweet Corn.. Take out some of the bacon fat, after cooking the bacon bits till browned, then add the greens, wilt them down, then add your canned sweet corn, at least a quarter cup of the corn juice is ideally added. Simmer till warm though an serve.
Now for those that are making it in your home.
- 1 pint sweet corn- one large can or two small cans of the best sweet nibbled corn
- 2 slices of bacon, diced
- 12 oz of cleaned an diced Dandelion greens, (or spinach or mustard greens)
- A pinch of salt to taste
