    What Are Edible Flowers (No Misprint!)?

    I found this information on a cooking site, I hope it helps you. "Bean blossoms have a sweet, beany flavor. Nasturtiums have a wonderfully peppery flavor similar to watercress and their pickled buds can be substituted for more expensive capers. Borage tastes like cucumber, and miniature pansies (Johny-Jump-Ups) have a mild wintergreen taste.

    Violets, roses and lavender lend a sweet flavor to salads or desserts. Bright yellow calendulas are an economic alternative to expensive saffron, though not quite as pungent. Other flowers may have a spicy or peppermint flavor.

    When in doubt, taste, but first be sure it's not poisonous. "
    Find large list of edible and poisonous flowers on the following site:

    I know of a commercial on TV before I lost my cable about Edible Flowers.  It's a bouquette of flowers made intirely out of fruit and chocolate.  And if that's not the answer you were looking for, then sorry for crowding your question.  I might try one when I can afford it though, it sounds delicious!

    sunflower seeds, but they are seeds! LOL. In our country, tamarind flower is included in a soup, together with meat and other vegetables.
