Edible flowers from the garden - Galveston County Daily News
Other beauties to avoid eating include hydrangea and Texas mountain laurel.Be sure flowers are free of pesticides. Regulations for how to use pesticides on food crops differ from regulations for ornamental crops. Be sure that the rose or pansy flower you have your eye on has not been treated with any pesticides which are illegal to be used on a food crop.Roses, for example, are sometimes treated with a systemic insecticide that is applied to the soil. This should not be regarded as safe for human consumption due to the use of a systemic insecticide that can be present in most or all parts of a plant for several weeks after application.When choosing flowers for edibility, look for those grown safely. Don’t pluck a flower at random from an unfamiliar location or make the assumption that flowers in florist displays are edible.In most cases, the petals are the palatable part of the flowers listed as “edible.” Remove the stamens and pistil from larger flowers such as daylilies (the stamens are covered with pollen, which may aggravate allergies).Reliably edible flowers include calendulas, dandelions, geraniums, nasturtiums, pansies, roses, squash blossoms, and sweet violets. This is only a partial list of edible flowers.One flower that will soon be abundant in many area landscapes is the daylily. While the daylily nowadays is considered a delicacy by wild food gatherers and knowledgeable chefs, it has a long history in Chinese cuisine in addition to Chinese medicine.Daylily flowers can be used in a variety of ways. They add sweetness to soups and vegetable dishes. Flowers that are half opened or fully opened may be dipped in a light batter of flour and water and fried in a wok. You can add the petals to egg dishes and salads. Dried daylily petals, called “golden needles” by the Chinese, are an ingredient in many Chinese recipes, including hot-and-sour soup.Some food preparers have suggested that varieties with pale yellow or orange flowers produce the sweetest, most delectable taste. However, it appears that daylily taste is related to type of cultivar more than flower color according to serious taste trials.Eating flowers is not a weird or unusual gastronomic endeavor. If you like broccoli or cauliflower, or artichoke, then you are already a flower connoisseur since a head of broccoli or cauliflower is composed of a few hundred unopened flowers! The general rule is that the flowers of most herbs and vegetables are safe to eat (with flowers of tomato, potato, eggplant and pepper being notable exceptions). Always check first, because as with anything in life, there will always be exceptions.The guidelines provided here are definitely related to a common sense approach to selecting other types of flowers as food. Adding flower petals to a salad or garnishing a stack of pancakes with a small rose can be fun and effective, but it’s necessary to become informed before ingesting your floral creations.

Janet Johnson Obituary - UT | The Salt Lake Tribune
Hercules in Utah and Northrop Grumman in California. Following her retirement, she served a mission in Houston Texas, as a single senior sister. She loved working on genealogy and learning about her heritage, leaving a legacy of hundreds of names added to the record. She married Denton Riley Johnson in 2000 in the Jordan River Temple. He was so very kind to her. Together they served a mission in Arcadia California, and traveled the US, driving state-to-state with their trailer. Denton passed away in 2003, leaving Janet a widow. She leaves with no shortage of friends. Wherever she lived; Salt Lake, California, Bountiful, or Saint George; she quickly made friends, who she will miss. In her last years she spent as much time with her children as possible. She is survived by her sister, Alana Lewis (Richard), and children Grant Beckmann (Patrice), Carole Callahan, AnnMarie Beckmann, Charla Gonzales, April Beckmann (Patrick Varney), Mark Beckmann (Cindy), Matthew Beckmann (Belinda), Christine Acevedo (Lewis); and by many grand and great-grandchildren. Friends may leave condolences by sending an email to email@example.com. She would wish to thank all those who provided loving, devoted, and extraordinary care during her illness. Friends may call at the Westbrook 1st Ward, 6500 S Dixie Dr, West Jordan, UT, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, February 29th, 2020. A memorial service will be held immediately following at Noon.

The B. Marie’s Flowers team will be busy crisscrossing parts
of Tarrant County for deliveries in Hurst, Bedford, Euless, Colleyville and
Flower delivery juggernauts 1-800-FLOWERS say they will sell more than 7 million roses on Valentine’s Day and nearly 1 million Americans will get one of their deliveries at their front door.
Roses are predictably the most popular flowers, followed by lilies, gerbera, tulips, alstro, daisies, calla lilies and orchids.
