The consumption of flowers as food is an ancient practice amongst many cultures. You and I most likely consume flowers, in one form or another, in a lot of the foods we eat without even realizing it, for example; teas, soups, and sauces. The flowers of the same variety can smell, and taste very different when grown in different geographical locations. Taste difference is all about latitude, soil composition, and climate. When consuming flowers, it is very important that you only eat flowers that have been grown organically, and that you consume only the petals. Ensure you remove the pistils and stamens. Harvest flowers in the morning when it is cool, and always choose them at their peak of growth. And, of course, only eat flowers that you know for sure are edible!
