Edible flowers are obviously very often used for decorative reasons for desserts and salads, or served as a candied violet and rose petals. However, beside their attractive appearance, flowers also have quite different qualities. They often contain the same essential oils as the leaves of a plant, only in a slightly lesser degree. Coupled with the mostly sweet nectar of the buds and flowers, a mixture of very interesting and delicate flavours results, so that flowers are also used for seasoning and flavoring - and sometimes, this sweet flavour can even be perfect to top off your cooking and baking.
