As for the dandelions, your lawns and fields are probably peppered with the year's major bloom of yellow flowers now, or will be soon. These should be gathered from a clean space as well, and chemical free lawns always seem to have plenty of dandelions to spare. Collect a large bowl full of the flowers, or more if you are feeding a crowd. You can use a simple corn muffin boxed mix and water, or create your own batter recipe, but make the batter runny--similar in thickness to pancake batter. Heat a pot of cooking oil (any kind of pot or oil) or warm up a deep fryer. When the oil is hot, drop a handful of dandelion flowers into the batter and coat them. With a fork or your fingers, pick out 8 to 10 of the flowers and drop them into the hot oil. Fry them for a few moments until golden brown, and use a fryer scoop or slotted spoon to remove them onto paper towels to drain. Sprinkle a little salt on each batch of fried flowers as you remove them from the oil, and serve with the bacon-crumbled greens.
