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.
