Spring brings with it all things fresh and floral. The season’s first blooms – We decorate with them. We wear them. We photograph and flaunt them. We send them. We tend to them.
We eat them.
Wait. We eat them?
With spring decor turning all things floral, let’s not forget our dinner plates. Edible flowers are just about the prettiest treat we could imagine, taking the ‘garden to table’ trend to a whole new level.
There are definitely some beautiful blooms that should never be eaten. And it’s important to only include flora that hasn’t been treated chemically when plating petals.
Grow your own, get to know your green thumbed neighbor, or check out your local farmers market for ideal organic blooms. Then, try out a few of these gorgeous, garden-inspired dishes before experimenting on your own.
