5 edible flowers in your garden

We are not used to eat flowers and sometimes we don’t even know we could eat flowers from our own garden!

Don’t forget to have a guide book with you with illustration and description. Check the shape of the flower but also the leaf!

Here are 5 flowers easy to recognise:

  • Chives – Allium schoenoprasum : 0”56′
  • Honesty – Lunaria Annua : 1”45′
  • Columbine – Aquilegia 2”17′
  • Sage – Salvia officinalis 3’01”
  • Nasturtium – Tropaeolum 3’33

How to use them?

  • In a soup for savoury flowers like Nasturtium, Honesty or Chives.
  • In a dessert for sweet flavour or to decorate like Columbine, Sage or Pansy (that’s another one!).
  • In a tea like Sage.
  • In a salad to bring flavour and colours to your meal!

You shouldn’t be eating some flowers (ex: Columbine) if you are pregnant, young child or allergic to it.
