Edible flowers from the garden - Galveston County Daily News

Roman times, and to the Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Indian cultures. Edible flowers were especially popular in the Victorian era during Queen Victoria’s reign. So, just what are the guidelines for munching on flowers?There are some basic guidelines when it comes to edible flowers. It is important to be mindful when venturing into new gastronomic pursuits. Many of us do not have a family connection of an experienced “elder” to tell us which flowers might be safely edible, so it’s good to review some basics.It’s important to be cautious. If you have allergy issues or a compromised immune system, it’s best to skip these adventures with edible flowers unless you have total control over their production.Identify the flower exactly and eat only edible flowers or edible parts of those flowers. Tulip flowers, for instance, can be eaten, but only the petals. If the taste of any flower is objectionable—too bitter, too sour, too spicy, or just plain weird—don’t swallow it.Flowers can vary in edibility depending on the time of year. Once you have established that a flower is safely edible, experiment with its flavor and texture at different times of the year.Toxicity is a major concern. Some ornamental plants are distinctly poisonous though beautiful, including several that will be adorning landscapes as throughout the upcoming spring and summer growing seasons: bleeding hearts, lily-of-the valley and oleander. Even though a lovely daffodil may seem to be just the thing to top a birthday cake, stay away from using those. Other b...

Billions of flowers expected in annual Victoria flower count - CTV News

VICTORIA -- Pick a flower, any flower, and start keeping track of every one you see. That's the message of the 45th annual Greater Victoria Flower Count, a week-long event starting this Wednesday to help promote the island's natural beauty. From March 4 to 11, organizers of the flower count are asking residents to get explore the region and do some colourful math. People who are interested in participating can count up every blossom and flower they see and send their tallies to the Greater Victoria Flower Count website. "The flower count is an excellent way to remind the rest of Canada that this is where they should be at this time of year, here, Victoria," said Catharine Holt, CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, while holding a large bouquet of flowers. The flowers were just picked from the gardens of Government House, where the event will was announced. Excitement is budding for this year's flower count, which is expected to reach totals in the billions. During...

How to create a Valentine's Day bouquet that represents love, friendship - Petaluma Argus Courier

And a sweet way to do it is through posies, nosegays that in Victorian times came to be used as little “floral greeting cards.”Even tinier were “tussie mussies,” petite bouquets in ornate holders worn as a fashion accessory.SimplicityWhen creating your own posies, Sabankaya said, you don’t have to be too complex.“You can just grab three or four things,” she said. “If you want to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to someone, it doesn’t have to have eight or nine ingredients.” Snip flowers from your own garden, for example, or shop the farmers market or a local market such as Sequoia Floral in Santa Rosa.With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, here are two of Sabankaya’s popular recipes for saying “I love you” with flowers. Include a lovely note explaining the meaning of each flower.The Sweet Heart Posy is one of Sabankaya’s most requested posies. It would be sweet for a sweetheart or a daughter or anyone you hold dear.The Sweet Heart Posy9-12 pink rose stems: beauty and grace5-7 stems fuchsia: humble love8-10 stems eriostemon: my beloved, dear to me5-9 stems ranunculus: attraction, charming, I am dazzled by your charms7-10 stems oregano: kindness, happines5-7 stems carnation: bonds of love, affection3-5 stems daphne: desire to pleaseVariations: Use red roses or carnations to elevate your passions. Or omit attraction conveyed by ranunculus, making it more innocent for a daughter, niece or sister. Most flowers have more than one meaning. So in your accompanying note, you can leave out the meanings that don’t match your sentiment and focus only on those that do.------The Simplement L’Amour is the most popular posy in Sabankaya’s shop, with deep colors, tiny delicate blooms and layers of fragrant herbs.

Edible flowers: fragrant, tasty treats | The Real Dirt - Chico Enterprise-Record

Edible flowers have been used in cooking for thousands of years. During the Victorian era candied flowers were used in salads, sweets and pastries. Rose water and orange flower water are still being used daily in Middle Eastern and South Asian homes. We often use edible flowers today without even thinking about it: saffron strands are the dried stamens of crocuses (Carthamus tincorius), lavender is the secret to Herbs de Provence and the flowers of the hops plant are crucial to the production of many kinds of beer. Take a walk through your backyard garden to inventory what you might be able to use in the kitchen. If you are lacking appropriate flowers, spring is a good time to plant annual flower seeds to create an edible flower garden. Flower seeds are widely available online or in your local nursery. They are easy to start by scattering them into the landscape or starting them early in small pots indoors near a sunny window. Follow the directions on the seed packet. For a sunny spot in your garden you might opt for calendula, borage, sage, pansies or squash/pumpkin blossoms (Cucurbita spp.). Nasturtium (Tropseolum majus) is a shade-loving plant that needs room to wander. If you have space for a few perennials, lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) work well for our region and are very drought tolerant and deer resistant. When your edible flowers bloom, the best time to harvest them is in the morning after the dew has dried. Rinse them in cold water and allow them to air dry. They will need to be used right away or stored for a short time in the refrigerator. Many of the flowers can be used whole. If the flowers are large, like sunflowers, you may need to remove the petals, which is the part of the flower that you will use. Some flowers have a hint of flavor, so you may want to taste them before adding them to a dish to make sure they are appropriate and gauge the amount to use. Nasturtium has a slight peppery taste. Calendula has a saffron flavor. Sage flowers are both...

The meaning of different flowers - The Concord Insider

France and across Europe, eventually making their way across the ocean to the U.S. The first American book of this type was Victoria’s Dictionary of Flowers – About Flowers. The author was Victoria Jones, a floral arranger who had apparently sought refuge in the world of flowers following a fraught life, having lived in 32 foster homes by the time she reached 18 years of age. My review of the meanings of different flowers, comparing the earlier versions with more recent publications was quite eye-opening. Victoria’s book, for instance, as with virtually all others written on this subject, universally declare the red rose (genus rosa) to mean “love,” hence the plethora of roses dispensed by florists all over the country on Valentine’s Day and other love-expressing occasions like engagements, wedding anniversaries and the like. Be aware, however, that other colors of roses do not denote the same message. For example, a yellow rose signifies “infidelity” in both the old and new versions of the flower language writings. The more modern version of the yellow rose’s meaning begins its description with “jealousy, decrease of love,” adding infidelity at the end. Probably not a good choice if your intention is to profess your love to someone special. The white rose is defined as “a heart unacquainted with love” whereas the modern version lists “purity, heavenly, I’m worthy of you.” Really? And a dark crimson rose in the latest version gives “mourning” as its meaning. You probably ought to make sure any red roses you present to a loved one are in fact red, not dark crimson. As for non-rose flowers. There is the beautiful snapdragon, more commonly seen in larger floral arrangements. Victoria defined the snapdragon as “presumption” whereas the Farmer’s Almanac defined it as “deception, graciousness.” How can it represent both of these one must ask. (And it is all a bit of a dichotomy don’t you think)? The opposing definitions of lavender also brought me pause: the earlier version is “mistrust” whereas the latter version is “devotion, virtue.” Hmmm. Following are some “ABC’s” of interesting definitions of some of the flowers you may be ...
