Wondering how many of you incorporate these into your cooking/presentaion?

Any favorite uses?

Any favorite varieties of flowers? mm :rolleyes:

Where I work, we use edible hibiscus as a garnish on some salads and on the daily specials. They are bright purple, and while edible I don't find they have much flavor.

There was also a dessert sauce where we put lavendar, but I don't know if that is more of a flower or something else. It is very strong, though, and has to be used carefully.

Nasturtiums are good too, and I will never forget this pasta I had in Victoria, BC, with bachelor buttons. It was beautiful AND tasted great!
