    Who were the 37 jerks to dislike a 94 year old woman's YouTube video? She harvested Dandelions for goodness sake! She's adorable!

    Respect to all the woman who cooked scavenged and spent countless hours back in the day to feed their family ✌🏼️❤️

    I had always noticed elderly people cutting dandelions out their yard with a knife while driving through older neighborhoods. I just thought they were weeding out the lawn. I wonder how many of them were eating them. I remember stories my mom had told me about her grandmother feeding them thistle, wild spinach, wild asparagus, basically stuff I was getting paid to mow as a teen. I still drink chicory with my coffee, it's part of my "N'Awlins Heritage"

    Where I live it's a tradition to eat dandelion salad in the spring time (before they flower). We also put sliced boiled eggs and potatoes in it, makes for a great lunch all on its own. Only downside is you can't make it much in advance or store it, since the dandelions tend to get bitter quickly.

    Listen people, I understand the sentimental character of this video may trick you into trying this, but be warned! This was extremely bitter. I had three glasses of water to wash the taste away, and it still lingered.

    I now hold steadfast to the opinion that this nuisance weed must be eliminated from my garden.

    I grew up poor and my family ate dandelion all the time. It was our only green that my family ate. My dad was Italian and he called it "Cicoria" (pronounced, "che-cor-ia")… My mom and dad, and us 4 kids, would go into the woods in northeast Pennsylvania and pick dandelion for our salad. It was delicious, the greens are a little bitter, but the dressing my dad made was very good. … It breaks my heart to see people spray weed killer all over dandelion, it's the same as killing nutritious dark green lettuce. … Thank you, Clara, for the wonderful memory.  🙂

    My grandma used to send us kids to all of the neighbor's yards with a little knife and a paper bag to pick these. She would make a little mark on our hand to show how long to get them. ( of course the neighbors were asked first), lol We would have them cooked with bacon crumbles, or just bacon fat. Grandma and now I do this too, kept a grease jar on the stove for bacon fat. Then we sometimes had them in a salad. Love, love, love this!!!

    The first thing I did after watching this was go outside and pick some dandelion leaves and make myself a salad, it's literally the best thing I've ever had. Thanks Clara!

    She was a wonderful person, I have loved every video. Where do you get an Olive Oil container like Nana had? I would love to find one like hers. May you all be truly blessed!

    She's an old woman with a lifetime of experience, don't expose her to the frothing Neanderthals that is the YouTube comment section.
