A wonderful edible flower. Flavours range from spicy to bitter, tangy to peppery. Calendula's sharp taste resembles saffron. Pretty petals in golden-orange hues.
To eat: Sprinkle them on soups, pasta or rice dishes, herb butters, and salads. Petals add a yellow tint to soups, spreads, and scrambled eggs.
* Only Calendula petals are edible, and not the rest of the plant.
In the world of edible annual flowers, nasturtiums are one of the tastiest and easiest to grow. Young nasturtium young leaves are tender and also edible.
While most edible flowers have a subtle flavour, nasturtiums have a stronger peppery taste. Nasturtiums are popular with chefs and home gardeners because their colorful flowers not only dress up a plate, they're high in vitamins A, C (10 times as much as lettuce), and D.
To eat: A gorgeous edible garnish, Nasturtiums are especially fabulous in a green salad. Also lovely chopped up into a creamy herb spread or dip, or stuffed with a creamy filling.
A medicinal herb with a lovely fresh flavour, Borage also known as starflower or cornflower, bee bush, bee bread, and bugloss, is a medicinal herb who's flavour resembles cucumber.
Both the leaves and flowers of Borage are edible and tasty.
To eat: Borage has various culinary applications. As a start, the leaves can be used as a salad green and the flowers as edible decorations. In addition, the herb is wonderful in soups, salads, preserves, various sauces, cooked as a stand-alone vegetable, and can used in desserts in the form of fresh or candied flowers.
This herb is also the highest known plant source of gamma-linolenic acid and a source of B vitamins, beta-carotene, fiber, choline, and trace minerals.
