General Usage
Edible flowers as a garnish make any dish look special on your table, but be sure the flavor of the flower compliments the dish. Here are a few ideas to pretty up your meals:

  • Place a colorful gladiolus or hibiscus flower (remove the stamen and pistil) in a clear glass bowl and fill with your favorite dip.
  • Sprinkle edible flowers in your green salads for a splash of color and taste.
  • Freeze whole small flowers into ice rings or cubes for a pretty addition to punches and other beverages.
  • Use in flavored oils, vinaigrettes, jellies, and marinades.
  • One of the most popular uses is candied or crystallized flowers, used to decorate cakes and fine candies.
  • Asthmatics or others who suffer allergic reactions to composite-type flowers (calendula, chicory, chrysanthemum, daisy, English daisy, and marigold) should be on alert for possible allergic reaction.

A few more tips

  • Use flowers sparingly in your recipes, particularly if you are not accustomed to eating them. Too much of a pretty thing can lead to digestive problems.
  • If you are prone to allergies, introduce flowers in small amounts so you can judge their effect. Also, some have a much more pronounced flavor than others, so you'll need to judge accordingly.
  • The leaves of some flowers also have culinary uses, but be sure to check a trusted food reference source before experimenting.
