Flower Garden Gelatin Dessert! 🌸🌺🌼🌻 Who needs a bouquet of flowers when you can have edible flowers? 😌
Here are some tips:
1- If you are #vegetarian,
and typically avoid using gelatin in the recipes, you can simply substituting agar in its place!
2- Remember to do your research before you eat any flower. Eat flowers only when you are positive that they are edible. Some flowers look VERY similar. Be sure to have a positive ID first!
3- Many plants you purchase from retailers have been sprayed with pesticides. Only eat flowers that were grown organically. If you don't have a farmers' market nearby, look for edible flowers in the produce section (not the florist section!) of your grocery store. I got the pack of organic edible flowers from my local @wholefoods as I was pretty sure they carry them. You can also order them online. Shops like Gourmet Sweet Botanicals, Marx Foods, and Melissa's will ship to you overnight so they're as fresh as possible.
4- Also, just because you can eat them doesn’t mean you should. Sometimes consuming vast amounts of blooms will not sit too kindly in your digestive tract. 😬
Now, get out there and add some color to your garden and your food. 👋😀
