This wonderfully healthy and beautifully aromatic recipe is one from my grandmother's treasure of recipes. She makes it for us with the banana flowers obtained straight from her garden. This is a classic Kerala ( state in India) dish. It comes from the concept of not wasting any part of the plant and making use of everything. This dish is generally a side dish along with rice. The thoran is packed with nutrients with ample benefits.
I can't wait for May when the fragrance of elderflowers lies in the air and the wild roses begin to bloom! You know Spring has come, and it's time for this deliciously pink jelly made of wild rose petals and elderflowers. A big family favorite!
This rose petal vinegar is super easy to make. It will keep at least a year, although the color is most intense during the first few months. In addition to using it in a vinaigrette, you can add a few drops to your bathwater, soothe bug bites or relieve the pain of sunburn.
A magical and easy recipe, perfect to gift it to some one you love. In Classical Latin, Lilac is called Syringa vulgaris, in German we call it (Gemeiner) Flieder. It has a lot of health benefits and it smells addictive. #edibleflowers
Edible Flower Challenge.
We had both a sedate cat named Daisy and a crazy cat named Mazie. To honor their memory in my garden, I planted crazy daisies. Not only are they pretty (and pretty crazy), they are edible! I found a recipe for spicy daylilies and daisies from ediblewildfood.com, and decided to modify it to only use crazy daisies. They can be used in many ways, including in sandwiches. And since I always try to end a sandwich meal with a pickle, now I can end the meal with a pickled flower instead. No disrespect intended, Daisy and Mazie!
Incidentally, Mazie always liked to "help" me with my many projects, so the stitching for this illustration, real and drawn, was done in her memory.
Making flower infused vinegar is easy and they can be used to make a wonderful and nutritious salad dressing. With a little time, a handful of blossoms or flowers and some good quality vinegar you can have jars strikingly beautiful flavoured vinegar.
Store in a cool, dark place for at least a month before using.You can also infuse vinegar with herbs like thyme, rosemary, tarragon, oregano or sage.
This is my submission for the design challenge - Edible Flowers.
I love to paint flowers, and to combine them with a recipe illustration has been a wonderful experience as I illustrated this DANDELION JELLY. The Dandelion blossoms and leaves are handpainted in watercolours and digitized for this purpose.
