Spring has been a great time to celebrate for our ancestors in Germany. Imagine yourself back a few hundred years
before there was supermarkets, fridges or freezers and good medicine. Just making it through the winter was something
to celebrate but also the coming of some fresh grown vegetables. I think you would want to celebrate as well.
This dish is called Spring Tonic because the greens were known to be great for detoxifying the liver and cleansing other organs.
A celebratory meal of the greens along with some ham, and potatoes became popular and still is to this day in areas.
Burr Fischer's dandelion greens are topped with a hot bacon dressing.

Dandelion Greens and Kale Stew
with Bone Broth
A good way to enjoy dandelion greens or other greens is to make a stew. This breaks down the
toughness of the greens and we see it in most every culture. The stew can be used for any meal
and as a side dish for about anything you think. Whether you serve them for breakfast lunch or dinner
and as a main or side it really qualifies as a comfort food.
The Stew is enhanced even better with......
Bone broth is rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains
healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline.
The collagen in bone broth heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation.

or beef up your bone broth by making
a Consommé or you could say a
Double Bone Broth
basically this is a bone broth that you make a mix of minced beef (hamburger) egg whites
and spices and slow simmer it. the mixture floats to the top and congeals making what is
called a "raft". You then skim this off and strain it and you not only have this wonderful
enriched broth but it will be crystal clear as well.
