Edible Flowers

Did I just mention “flowers”?  Yes, some flowers are actually edible, which you can use to add flavor and aroma to your dish.    Some of these flowers include rose, geranium, basil, and hibiscus.  Choose those that are grown free from harmful pesticides and other chemicals.  When we also talk about edible flowers, it’s not that you can actually pick a flower and use it right away.  There’s a proper way to prepare them, such as soaking them in clean water and drying them a bit before using.  You can click here to learn more about preparing edible flowers.
