    Yes they can. No they don't. Not that great......more like a punishment for being ill prepared and not having enough coffee.

    Eat them, but use the younger leafs, they are less bitter.

    I've heard that dandelion stems reduce the sugar level in the blood and strengthen your immune system. Have you noticed this effects on you? I tried to chew some, but they have indeed bitter taste. However, I'll continue to add them to my diet until I get used to the taste.

    I guess I'm curious as the where that came from?......and also who your question is addressed to?

    A source (trusted) would be good. I don't know that I would
    continue to add them to my diet until I get used to the taste
    if I didn't care for the taste and was not sure of the health benefits.

    My dad picked a bunch of dandelion leaves and wilted it with bacon grease and vinegar in a cast iron skillet on time when we were camping out. He told me they were mustard greens and of course back then I didn't know the difference. It was actually pretty good mostly because of the bacon grease I think..........LOL After we ate he finally told me what it was!
    I don't know if that is the standard recipe for dandelion eating but it really wasn't bad!
