About this blog

My photo
Wales, United Kingdom
In autumn 2010, my husband Ian and I both quit our jobs, sold our house and left the flatlands of the east for the mountains of Wales. Our goal is to create a more self-sufficient lifestyle in a place we actually like living. Whilst Ian will continue to earn some money as a freelancer, my part of the project is to reduce how much we spend by growing and making as much of what we need as possible. The purpose of this blog is to keep friends updated with how the grand project is progressing, but all are welcome here. If you're not a friend already, well perhaps you might become one.

Dandelion fritters for lunch

It's that time of year again...

The dandelions are flowering!

... when dandelion fritters are on the menu again.

Dandelion fritters, served with chilli jam made by the lovely Susie Gee,
and eaten on the new terrace

Om nom nom!


  1. My children are planning to go dandelion flower picking for fritters!
    I mentioned wine, but they vetoed that and declared any flowers they pick are for fritters. Which they eat with syrup, which might be why they're so popular!

    1. I tried making dandelion wine last year, and I think I vote for fritters too!

      Well, I might give the wine one more try...

  2. I just made some of these for lunch today & they were amazing. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Is there a recipe? I need fritters, help!

  4. Pick dandelions, removing as much of the greenery as you can without the flowers falling apart. Dunk in pancake batter (or any variation thereof. Mine are always a bit on the rich side because I have no use for a spare half-egg, so I use a whole egg). Fry. Enjoy :-)
