:: Edible flowers ::

I've been seeing edible flowers getting a lot of attention lately and I have to say I'm intrigued. Whether it's candied or covered in chocolate, just the idea of edible flowers gets me excited.  It doesn't hurt that it makes for a gorgeous presentation too.  Since not all flowers are created equal here's a quick heads-up on a few blooms you can consume :  pansies, zucchini ,marigolds, margarita daisies, saffron, roses, lavender, hibiscus,  and chrysanthemum daisies.  Just make sure you buy organic, pesticide-free flowers and to only eat the petals!

You can always grow your own organic flowers or buy them online at  MarxFoods or Sweetfields Inc.
