Edible Flowers

by Marketman

Unusual things tend to grab my attention at the market. aedfToday I spied a really nice mix of edible flowers that would make a terrific garnish for a fancy dish or to color a boring green salad. Frankly, edible flowers are good for color but I have always found them a bit too “flowery” and “stameny” to eat in any large volume. This terrific looking mix is made up of hibiscus blooms, malva flowers, marigolds and malunngay flowers. It looks great, it didn’t cost too much, and it is 100% organic. My suki Gil Carandang at Salcedo had several containers of them this morning and I found some other goodies at his stall that I will feature in the next day or so.
