Summer’s Edible Flowers

Eating flowers is fun!  For adults, garnishing meals with flowers and petals really makes the food seem more special.  For kids,  experiencing edible flowers is a great way to use all five senses, encourages taste testing and trying new flavors, and can seem thrilling in a very controlled sort of way.  I love watching emotions ebb and flow through a tentative six year old gearing up to put a flower in his mouth and taste it.  It really can be quite memorable!  Check out the variety of edible flowers blooming in my garden right now:
