what else you should know

dandelion root

The dandelion get its common name from the French descriptive phrase dent de lion, which means “lion’s tooth” and is a reference to the toothed edges of the plant’s leaves. This member of the sunflower family is also known by several other interesting common names, including swine's snout, clocks, blowballs and priest's crown. The plant’s genus name has an equally interesting etymology that combines the Greek words taraxos and akos, which respectively mean “disorder” and “remedy.”

Although the early herbals of the 16th century gave considerable space to the virtues of dandelion flower and leaf, the root wasn’t described or even illustrated until much later. In his Acetaria: A Discourse of Sallets, the 17th century author John Evelyn was among the first to describe Welsh cooks combining second year dandelion roots with the leaf in salads. It wasn’t until the mid-19th century that roasted dandelion root became known as a coffee substitute, a purpose for which is it still used today.
