Edible Flowers

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

One of the most beautiful salads I ever saw was strewn with edible flowers. It was so pretty, it was almost a shame to eat it! I have also enjoyed rose petal sandwiches and stuffed squash blossoms. After I found out my daylilies were edible, I did try them (kind of like eating iceberg lettuce - not a lot of flavor, but pleasant) Wandering around somewhere recently I found this website that lists a lot of different edible flowers and wanted to share!

I think it better to share the link than to just copy their work... take a few minutes and check these out - you might have really pretty salads in your future!

    What an interesting idea! I've never tried any flowers - maybe I should!

    I love squash and pumpkin blossoms. They remind me of Morel Mushrooms somewhat. Thanks for sharing.

    I've made lemon squares for showers and topped each square with a violet frosted with a very light coat of superfine sugar; the have someone of a light minty flavor to me which is a good combination with the lemon flavor of the squares.

    Just a reminder for those new to edible flowers, make sure they are pesticide free. My aunt has seen some of my flower garnished foods and decorated a cake with flowers out of her garden, not knowing to consider the pesticides.
