- from Flowers
If someone offered you a bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with violets, would you eat it? Maybe you’d say yes to the ice cream and no to the violets? How about a salad made with peppery nasturtiums (na-STUR-shums)?
Eating flowers might seem strange, but you probably do it daily. Flowers make seeds and fruits, which are common foods. Violets, roses, and even dandelion leaves go into many tasty dishes. Lots of flowers make great teas, and some contain strong medicines.
