Strathcona 1890 - Edible Bouquet Seed SAMPLER

$9.00

The Edible Bouquet is a small taste of what we put into our Edible Flowers collection.

It contains Calendula, Nasturtiums and Borage. 

In the world of edible annual flowers, nasturtiums are one of the tastiest and easiest to grow. 

While most edible flowers have a subtle flavor, nasturtiums have a stronger peppery taste. Plus, the young leaves are tender and edible as well. Nasturtiums are popular with chefs and home gardeners because their colorful flowers not only dress up a plate, they're high in vitamins A, C (10 times as much as lettuce), and D.

Borage is a wonderful plant to have around the garden. Borage also known as starflower or cornflower, bee bush, bee bread, and bugloss, is a medicinal herb with edible leaves and flowers.

With a taste like cucumber, borage has various culinary applications. The leaves can be used as a salad green and the flowers as edible decorations, but to stop there would be an insult to the wide variety of uses for borage. This herb can be used in soups, salads, preserves, various sauces, cooked as a stand-alone vegetable, or used in desserts in the form of fresh or candied flowers, to name a few.

This herb is also the highest known plant source of gamma-linolenic acid and a source of B vitamins, beta-carotene, fiber, choline, and trace minerals. 

Calendula are a wonderful edible flower. Flavors range from spicy to bitter, tangy to peppery. Their sharp taste resembles saffron (also known as Poor Man’s Saffron). They have pretty petals in golden-orange hues. Sprinkle them on soups, pasta or rice dishes, herb butters, and salads. Petals add a yellow tint to soups, spreads, and scrambled eggs. Only the pedals are edible.
