- from Flowers
If someone served you a bowl of vanilla ice cream topped with pretty violets, would you be willing to eat it? Maybe you’d say yes to the ice cream and no to the violets? Would you be willing to try a tasty 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 we all eat. Delicious dishes are made with violets, roses, and even dandelion leaves. Many flowers make great teas, and some flowers contain medicines that can save lives.
