FLOWERS THAT ARE PRETTY ENOUGH TO EAT

Oh, how I love the beautiful flowers this time of the year. As our seaside ranch home slowly comes together after over 3 years, I find myself starting to thing about the outside spaces. No doubt that I will be posting about pretty flowers and garden inspiration in the future. However, at the moment I turn my attention specifically toward edible flowers. Perhaps you might want to use this Mother’s Day weekend as a perfect excuse to create a beautiful, albeit delicious dish. I am sure the mothers in your life will approve!

Frozen in time and straight from your freezer….floral infused ice cubes are a great way to add a touch of simple charm.

This recipe is for chamomile whiskey but these flowers would look equally as lovely garnished in a glass of fresh squeezed lemonade.

  • Do not eat any flower or plant unless someone knowledgeable has informed you that it is safe to ingest and they have informed you about how to prepare it safely.
  • Keep allergies in mind..for your and your guests.
  • Avoid any flowers or plants that may have been sprayed with pesticides. 
  • Not all plants and flowers are edible. Some are poisonous either naturally or from the use of toxic chemical pesticides.
  • Flowers from florists, nurseries and traditional garden centers should not be eaten as pesticides may have been used.
  • I am not a expert nor or claim to be one. It is up to you to figure out what is safe to consume.

  1. What great inspiration. I love the ice cubes with mint or even violas, both perfectly safe to consume unless someone has an allergy.
    Have a lovely weekend
