Adding floral delights to your plate

Edible flowers not only beautify your plate, they give an extra bit of sweet or savory spice and make ordinary recipes come alive.

Some flowers are commonly used to make teas and traditional medicines.

Not all flowers are edible! Be sure you reference a reliable resource to identify edible varieties.

Never eat flowers that have been sprayed with pesticides or other chemicals.
