Edible Flowers Stimulate Food Insta-Worthy, But Would You Feed Them?

Foodgramshave always dominated my Insta feed, but lately, I’ve been find a lot more flowers on food. My question is, do people actually eat the flowers?

We’ve always known there are types of flowers that are edibleand there are ways to incorporate them in cooked dishes. Usually, flowers are utilized like herbs to add subtle accentseasoning or support the main flavor of a dish.

I don’t truly get the whole throwing them into salads and on top of desserts thing, though.

Sprinkling them on food surely builds for a pretty food Instagram, but would you actually eat them?

You’d suppose feeing flowers would attain food taste like perfume…

…but apparently they add some zing to certain recipes.

This flower-covereddessert seems too pretty to eat.

They can definitely add a pop of color to a fruit salad.

I suppose I’d brush the flowers off before feeing them…

Apparently, some flowers savor spicy!

Edible flowers make any dish appear gourmet.

Not all flowers are safe to feed, though…

…you have to make sure they’re culinary grade.

Am I looking at doughnuts or a garden of goodness?

You can buy borage flowers like this cute one at farmers markets…

…or you can just grow them yourself.

If you would eat them, what would you put edible flowers on?
