Dandelion Salad

Those bright yellow tiny flowers aren’t just eyesores, peskily dotting across your lawn. They contain nutrients like vitamins A, K, E, and C, folate, magnesium, iron, calcium, and potassium. They may even help control blood sugar, cholesterol, and healthy bacterial flora levels in the intestines.

From the days of the Great Depression came Dandelion Salad, a recipe demonstrated here by Clara at age 94 (she has since passed, but not before leaving us a bountiful array of helpful videos).

Rumor has it that Dandelion Tea is also nutritious and tasty! Not interested in the salad or tea, but you’d like to make a Dandelion Horn instrument? Try this out.

If you’re somehow short on dandelions in your area, buy some here to make your own Dandelion Salad.

White Mulberry Sorbet

Mulberries come with a unique flavor and are most often available in the late spring and summer. White mulberries are super rich in vitamin C and anthocyanins. In China, they are a blood tonic used to treat various illnesses, including anemia and fatigue.

When your tree drops its mulberries, you won’t be low on ways to use them. You’ll often find mulberries in jams, jellies, pies, tarts, and other baked goods like you would expect to see other berries. You can also sprinkle them on your cereal, into smoothies, or atop yogurt parfaits. If you want to try something fancier, you can make this flavorful Mulberry Sorbet. Want to make it for grown-ups only? Add a shot of your favorite complementary liqueur to the mix.

Plum Preserves

Plums are nutrient-rich and develop into equally nutritious prunes as they age. A few bites of either are bursting with Vitamins A, C, K, Potassium, Copper, Manganese, and more, and prunes are a natural treatment for constipation.

This mouth-watering Plum Preserves recipe was inspired by Little House on the Prairie and called for 2 ½ pounds of fresh tart plums, 4 cups sugar, and 1 cup water. They’ll walk you through the steps and even suggest variations like adding ginger, vanilla, or lavender at the end. Make sure you cook it long enough to thicken correctly!

Grilled Chicory Risotto with Walnuts

Surprisingly, the chicory plant belongs to the Asteraceae family with sunflowers and daisies and has inner and outer leaves that are mild-tasting and bitter. All parts of the chicory plant are edible. Easy to spot with its light blue flowers, the plant is considered medicinal for a plethora of ailments, and the root is often boiled in hot water to make a flavorful caffeine-less “coffee.”

Try this out for a tasty variation on the expected chicory dishes. The chicory and walnuts will give texture to the risotto for an easy vegetarian side dish made in 35 minutes.

Black Raspberry Cobbler with Bisquick

Pleasantly rich in color, black raspberries are also brimming with vitamins and minerals like Vitamin A, C, and E, zinc, selenium, folic acid, anthocyanins, quercetin, and fiber, phytosterols, and more. They’re known to inhibit cancer growth and heal digestive issues.

When you get tired of eating them raw (as if!), go ahead and make a cobbler with them. This version is easy peasy and uses 1 ½ cups of black raspberries, water, sugar, cornstarch, butter, cinnamon, milk, and homemade Bisquick (you can use the store-bought variety instead, though). It’s good hot or cold, but we recommend it fresh out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Blueberry Hand Pies

Blueberries are incredibly nutrient-dense, with a 1-cup serving boasting 24% of the body’s RDI for Vitamin C, 36% RDI for Vitamin K, and 25% RDI of manganese. According to HealthLine, they are also superior in antioxidant levels compared to most well-known fruits and vegetables. They also may help lower blood pressure and prevent heart disease.

Make these with the grands or the littles, and they’ll disappear in no time! You’ll need your favorite pie crust recipe (or use theirs), 2 cups of blueberries, a lemon for zesting and fresh juice, flour, sugar, salt, and an egg. It makes six servings, ready in 35-40 minutes.

Improve Your Landscape With Mulberry Tree The presence of Mulberry Trees in your environment improves the look and feel of the area. A tree even gives you a lovely shade since it grows tall and has large spreading canopies. The tree grows to provide an excellent relaxing spot for the summer. The tree sheds off its leaves in colder seasons, allowing you to experience the little sun available. You will love the berries these trees produce as they are sweet and can be eaten straight out of being picked. The berries even improve the appearance of the tree. When ripe, mulberries are dark and juicy and give out a great flavor. Throughout the summer, you can enjoy these fruits and even use them to make jams and desserts. Unlike other trees, the mulberry grows fast and can produce fruits after only two years. The Fruit Of The Mulberry Tree Typically, different trees produce fruit after ten years or so. After its second year, your tree will keep increasing its fruit production and reach its maximum sometime in its tenth year. The trees are pretty hardy and can grow in poor conditions. The tree can tolerate many types of soils, environments, and weather conditions. Interestingly, deserts and the hot tropics are the only known challenging climates for the tree. They are usually capable of surviving arid seasons and can even tolerate the coldest of temperatures. Mulberry trees attract lots of animals and insects, and these can help beautify your property to a significant extent. Beautiful birds and insects perch on the tree to get to the berries. This is the reason why nature lovers appreciate this tree. If you own a farm or other plants, the tree can also distract animals from eating your food. The berry production of the trees is enough to feed the birds, insects, animals, and even you.
