Edible flowers

Here at Salty River Farm we love to grow edible flowers. We have traditional edible flowers such as calendular, nasturtium, cornflower, dianthus, viola and borage. But we also often let our vegetables flower as their flowers can be so delicious and pretty - chinese broccoli flowers and kale flowers taste just like their parents and look lovely scattered through a salad. Rocket flowers give a peppery zing. Sage flowers can be whipped through sweetened cream cheese for a gorgeous cake icing. And my favorite of all is to fold nasturtium petals through butter - a very pretty and delicious spread.
