Are these flowers edible?
Hi, I've got some foodie-event cooking planned this weekend and the requirement is that we use edible flowers (along with a couple other ingredients). I've got a bunch of flowers that are still in bloom (a lot are done already) -- but I'm not sure if all of these are edible -- help, please?
- chrysanthemum segetum
- alcea rosea
- bachelor's buttons
- scarlet runner bean
- showy evening primrose
I guess my main questions are:
are these edible,
*have you actually eaten them* -- and not gotten sick LOL,
and do you have any favorite recipes?
I also have marigolds and a few nastys left and will default to using those if any of the above are not edible.
