    Edible Flowers:

    Edible flowers are part of many regional cuisines, including Asian, European, and Middle Eastern cuisines.

    Flowers are added to foods to provide taste, aroma, and color. They can be part of a main dish, a salad, or a dessert. They can be added as a garnish. Flowers can be incorporated into beverages as flavorings, or used to make teas or wines.

    However not all flowers are edible. Flowers cultivated as ornamental plants for garden use are not intended for use as food as they commonly carry traces of pesticides and harbor organisms such as insects.

    Many flowers that are technically edible can be far from palatable. Some flowers can be eaten whole, but some have bitter parts, such as the stamens and stems. It is recommended to wash all flowers before consumption.
