  1. Wow that’s a good deal for healthy food
    …the edible flowers sounds interesting…plz teach us what we can do or make with edible flowers…I would like to try

    • So far, I have only been eating them with salads. Though, I have seen them being used as a tasty garnish with cooked vegetables, on desserts, and soups. When I have guests over, I liked to cut up seasonal fruit and arrange them on a nice serving dish, with the flowers as decor. I will experiment and put up a couple of recipes using the flowers and nutritional benefits.
