Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"
They may be edible, but I have only seen them as a garnish, like parsley. I have never had flowers as a course. But on any question dealing with food, I would certainly defer to your exponentially greater knowledge than mine, Sharon. Except for ice cream. I could probably hold my own on that topic.
Great to see flowers posted on the portal...finally. Hope this continues! I, too, have seen these lovely blooms only as garnish. I think I'll try to find a recipe for them. Reminds me of the delectable squash blossoms!!
A quick check of google brought up nasturtium oil, mayonnaise, pesto, soup, gazpacho, etc. Someone should inform Dave! I'm going to try them in MN this summer after I return!
One of my favorite flowers. I like this collage.I have put nasturtium leaves in salads and used the flower for an edible garnish. The leaves are very peppery tasting. I probably wouldn't want to eat a whole salad of them but a few sprinkled in with a variety of greens is quite tasty.
I have nasturtiums in one form or another on both of my blogs this morning! Great minds... I love your photos (as always). I talked my daughter into trying one of the leaves yesterday...too peppery for her.
You have made a gorgous collage with these great pictures!
Beautiful, Sharon. I had a salad with these in it at Sanctuary once. Bo is very creative.
This feels like a spring bouquet. Thank you. So bright and cheerful...and edible too.
Years ago we went to a restaurant near Deland, Florida where they served "edible" flowers. I wonder if these were some of them.They are beautiful, Sharon!
So, you couldn't make up your mind which images you liked best, so you "cheated" and put up a bunch of them?Seriously, great job -- love the collage.
