From peppery to citrusy, edible flowers are an
ideal way to add colour and interest to your dishes.
Choose organic varieties and ensure pets haven’t
had their “daily duties” on them!
Pull the flowers apart
and sprinkle on salads,
dips, sauces, and pizza.
Great as an addition to
potato salad! Flavour is
of mild, sweet onion.
Use petals in salads and
desserts or cooked
in egg or rice dishes.
Flavour is floral with
hints of citrus and spice.

Garnish for salads and
desserts with slight
wintergreen flavour. The
flowers are also good for
Dandelion Leaves - if you can’t beat them, eat them!
They have a slightly bitter taste when they mature, so
harvest the tender leaves that appear in early spring and
in late fall, when they’re sweetest. Dandelions have more
beta-carotene than carrots.
