  • Proper identification of edible flowers is essential

  • Use flowers that are pesticide free

  • For best flavor, use flowers at their peak and picked early in the day

  • Introduce new flowers into the diet slowly to be able to pinpoint allergic reactions ( once again proper identification is very important )

  • Edible flowers also may be preserved in oils or vinegars and dehydrated for later usage.

  • Do not use unopened blossoms because they may be bitter.

  • Edible flowers can also be used in baking, honey, syrup, candied flowers, sauces, jelly, vinegars, oil, tea, flower-scented sugars, and wine
