I Don’t Normally Eat Flowers, But…
“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity” – Voltaire
Under normal circumstances – I put too much butter on my toast. I like my steak medium. I bake because I like to eat what comes out of the oven. But I think I am being enticed over to the dark side…
Julatten Earth Foods makes something that I never thought I’d be tempted to eat. In fact, it never crossed my mind – or if it had, I’d laugh it off as a bad dream, but when I came across JEF’s edible flowers…well…just look at them…
The closest I’ve ever come to eating flowers is Dandelion tea (which, some of you may know, is more like a pretend coffee) So while this may seem like a review, seeing as I’ve never actually tried the above flowers, it’s not. So why the post? Cause I just think they’re cool and had to share.
I came across these beauties through a Facebook post Beach Harvest Australian Coconuts shared (a friend of mine who also has an amazing product that I have eaten and I can highly recommend) and I was mesmerised by the colourful merchandise, grown nearby.
It’s not that they look tasty. My mouth certainly doesn’t water when I look at flowers, but the fact that you can eat something so beautiful without being poisoned has got my curiosity piqued. Therefore, I have them pocketed in my mind for a time when I want a morning tea to be memorable… imagine a table full of fruits/cheese/cupcakes and edible flowers.
Now I just have to find an excuse for the above mentioned morning tea. And you are all invited so you can oooh and aahhh my lovely spread.
And that’s all I have to say really. I just wanted to share… and if you’ve eaten flowers before, leave a comment and let me know how they taste – I like to be prepared.
