But sweets are not the only way to incorporate flowers into your meals. Many flowers have a spicy, peppery flavor that compliment salads beautifully, or use flowering herbs to create colorful, savory breads or spreads.

Note: When cooking with flowers it’s important to use food-grade or garden fresh flowers, and avoid commercially grown, pesticide-soaked blooms.
