Priest’s Crown Roast
Coffee drinkers… Drink Priest Crown Instead!
Priest Crown is an Herbal name for Dandelion Roots. The word Dandelion Means “Tooth of the Lion” and is named so because of the leafs shape. When I was growing up I had a love-hate relationship with dandelions… I loved to hate them! Now that I am an herbalist I love loving them as one of my favorite detoxification herbs for the kidney and colon. Delicious as a roasted coffee too… Bon Appetit!
A fist full of cleaned, chopped up and dried dandelion roots (Endive roots, can be used in place of dandelion roots) They are larger and mature in one single growing season, whereas dandelions require several years to make the harvest worthwhile – The taste is the same).
If you just have capsules of Dandelion roots from the herb store, it works also. Just empty 3 capsules per cup desired into the skillet before heating it. Then roast them in a cast iron pan with the element on high, stirring constantly for uniform roasting. When they first start to smoke they are done. If it is pre-ground and from a capsule, remove from skillet and cool then use as ground coffee. If cut pieces use a coffee grinder then drip coffee maker. Few in life things are better than Priest’s Crown Roasted in a cast iron pan.
