    I ate a chive blossom once. It seems to me a generally good rule of thumb not to eat flowers.

    when done correctly dandelion is delicious, but yeah, overall, eating flowers has not been very enriching to/for the palate [sp]

    Dandelion is SO bitter. I remember as a kid we would pull them in our neighbor's front yard and he would pay us a penny a dozen. You don't want to stick your finger in your mouth for any reason after that.

    Did you fry them in bacon grease? Bacon grease will make anything taste good...
