{Monday Flowers} Eat Your Flowers!

bloom-salad-l

Fresh flowers don’t just have to live in a pretty vase to be enjoyed, branch out and start cooking with them! I am new the edible flower world and am really excited to add them to my little window garden. You can use them in so many dishes from salads to ice cubes to add beautiful color and an unexpected detail to your summer menu. I love this  simple Edible Flower Guide and to help get started Red Envelope has a great starter kit with everything you need from the seeds to the soil.

{Things to Keep in Mind}
Many garden centers, nurseries and florists treat flowers with systemic pesticides not labeled for food crops. Make sure you are only flowers grown specifically for culinary purposes.

What do you think? Are you ready to start cooking with flowers?
