I never knew to years later that dandelion tea has many uses. The one that really caught my attention was that it is used to help in the health of those suffering from Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. My Angel grandmother had type 1 diabetes. I just recently found out I am a type 2 diabetes. Dandelions helps with urine creation and to decrease swelling. Now I understand why she made it so much.
I got mom to look through grandma's old things. Luckily her dandelion tea was written down. Here it is :
1 cup boiling water
2 teaspoon dried dandelion leaves
Pick dandelion greens. Wash them thoroughly. Making sure all dirt is washed off. Place dandelion leaves in pot, pour boiling water, stir and cover for 3 - 5 minutes. Stirring one time. Strain dandelion greens out of tea. Pour in a glass.
Serving size 1. You can double, triple or even quadruple the recipe to make more servings at a time.
You can add lemon, orange, mint or honey for added taste.
