Edible Flower Guide: Ideas and Recipes

By brooklynsupper |

We all know we need to eat our fruits and veggies, but have you ever considered eating your flowers? A host of common flowers really are edible and can add pop and color to your summer dishes, not to mention unique flavor. Of course eating flowers can be daunting if you’re not familiar with the types and varieties that are edible. Luckily, Brooklyn Supper has put together a handy guide to some common edible flowers.

We also are happy to share our easy starter recipe for Johnny jump-up jam. It’s a cinch to make and has a beautiful violet hue. The flavor is mild and sweet, floral and bright. Mostly, it’s just fun to say you made it from flowers!

Note that you should use caution when eating flowers. Know your types, and use this guide to research varieties. Always eat flowers from a known, reputable source–flowers from florists are not suitable for eating.
