Edible Flowers

Some flowers not only look good, they taste good, too. Angela O'Callaghan tells us how you can use ornamental flowers to add some real color to your meals.

Disclaimers first:
Never eat flowers that have been treated with pesticides.
Some flowers are dangerously poisonous. Among them, oleander, lantana, jasmine, datura and all members of the tobacco/tomato family.

Nasturtiums and Dianthus can be spicy and add a kick to your salad. You might want to use sparingly.
Other edible flowers - Marigolds, Roses, Pansies and Violets.
