Re: Edible flowers

we always sprinkle calendula petals on salad to make it sunny.  and i absolutely LUUUUUV lavender sprinkled on good honey which is drizzled on plain yoghurt which is dollupped on fruit salad.  how enchanting....lavender in lemon loaf too.

Re: Edible flowers

Rocket, Arugula, Ruccola... whatever it is called... the flowers taste like the leaves and look quite pretty.

I love the idea of the ice bowl with flowers!!! Thanks for sharing!
