Flowers You Can Eat

Flower cookery has been traced back to Roman times, and to the Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Indian cultures. Edible flowers were especially popular in the Victorian era during Queen Victoria's reign. Today, many restaurant chefs and innovative home cooks garnish dishes with flower blossoms for a touch of elegance. The secret to success when using edible flowers is to keep the dish simple and not add too many other flavors that will over power the delicate taste of the flower.

One very important thing to remember is that not every flower is edible. In fact, sampling some flowers can make you very, very sick. To find out more about adding flowers to your edible table, http://healthyhighways.blogspot.com/2008/06/flowers-you-can-eat.html
