(from Acorn Pancakes, Dandelion Salads and 38 other Wild Recipes )
1 cup biscuit mix
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar or honey, more or less, to taste (these can be made without sugar for a more savory flavor)
1/2 inch of oil in a skillet
4 cups dandelion flower heads without stems
Mix together biscuit mix, milk, sugar or honey. Heat oil in skillet until it sizzles when a bit of batter is dropped into it. Dip dandelion flowers into the mix and drop into hot oil headfirst. Fry until golden brown. Turn with tongs and brown other side. Drain on paper towel and serve hot or cold.
