Flowers are such a fun ingredient to use, and a lot of people don’t know that many kinds of flowers are actually totally edible! Try these out today in your own kitchen and see how much fun it can be to play around with flowers!


Pansies are a flower that a lot of people don’t realize are edible, but they are and they’re amazing to use in cooking! They can sometimes taste a bit minty, so they work really well with other herbs and especially in salads!


Whether you like it in your cakes, your lattes, or your cocktails, lavender is an amazing flavor to be able to use to make your favorite dishes taste that much better. You can actually eat the buds, or you can just soak them in a liquid to infuse the flavor!


Roses are such a beautiful flower, and they smell and taste just as good! Rose is an amazing ingredient to use in your cooking, and even utilizing a few petals in a dish can make all the difference! They go great in sweet applications like ice cream or even grilled fruit to add a little bit of a light flavor but experiment with them in Middle Eastern dishes too where they often use a sweet or floral note to tie everything together.
