Today’s Special: All-purpose Flower Recipes

Picture the following scene: Spurred by the lazy river of April rain, happy little pansies have woken up and pushed their petal arms through the warm soil. Walking along, you spot these hue-saturated blooms. Emitting an “Ooh,” you pick one…and eat it.

Wait, eat it? Yep! You read that right. Pansies, along with a handful of other blooms, fall under the category of edible (not to mention pretty!) floral fodder. Though you may not want to chow down on them like you would a bag of pretzels, these edible flowers are a frighteningly wonderful way to make what you bake or cook look incredible!

Above are a few recipes for you to ooh and ahh over. Talk about inspiring, right?
