While at the farmers market this week, why not look for some edible flowers? If you have never tried eating edible blossoms, you are in for a treat. Large blossoms can be filled and eaten, like the zucchini flower, or added as a garnish, like the photo above of pansies and sunflowers, used as a flavor component in salads, in omlets and even sugared and eaten as a dessert.
When buying them from the market, buy them early and get home fast. Once picked, the flowers wilt pretty quickly.
If you would like to try eating stuffed zucchini blossoms, this recipe is delicious!
