If you are a host who feels that the dining table does not look good without a center of freshly cut flowers, then we are with you. People eat with their eyes as much as they eat with their other senses and a little beauty can make a simple meal extraordinary.
Well, you can enjoy the beauty of flowers not only on your table, but actually on the dinner plate! Edible flowers are an easy and beautiful way to add color and flavor to a dish, either as a garnish, or even added to the dish itself. And fresh flowers are served to guests in a simple dish such as a salad, or some other unadorned cake.
Many edible flowers are actually easy to grow! You can plant some of these plants in window boxes or flower beds so that you always have a constant supply. When choosing flowers from your garden, pick them first thing in the morning and when they just open, look fresh and taste them. Rinse gently, allow to dry on paper towels, and add to your dishes before serving. Fresh flower topping cakes and baked goods usually look good for two days.
A very important note: if you are buying edible flowers, Make sure they are not treated with pesticides or fungicides. It is best to get them from your garden or online companies that specialize in edible flowers. If you are buying flowers at a farmer’s market, talk to the farmer to make sure they have not been sprayed. We would recommend avoiding flower shops unless the store specifically advertises that their flowers have not been treated.
Here are some of our favorite edible flowers that are both beautiful. And Delicious:
