This is a story about John di Carlo, a 72 years old man who felt the remarkable healing properties of dandelion.

How to use and store dandelion root?
It can be used either fresh or dry. However, if you want to continue to use it out of season, then you need to dry it out.
Here is the procedure: prior drying, roots should be carefully peeled and cut into equal, small pieces. When this is done, you should expose the dried dandelion root where there is a fresh air. For instance, you can spread the dandelion root on a surface, in a cool dry place with good ventilation.
The drying out period will last 3-14 days, and you will see when dried becomes brittle. By using this procedure dried dandelion root will maintain its medicinal properties up to a year. The best storage would be in a glass jar in a cool, dark place.
