Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Life Style -

Now, you have one more rea­son to em­brace flow­ers, beyond their fra­grance and colour — by in­clud­ing them in your food. Here, ex­perts sug­gest in­no­va­tive ways of mar­ry­ing de­lec­ta­ble food with gor­geous ed­i­ble flow­ers:

Pansy: Mild and del­i­cate, this gar­den flower tastes like grapes and mint. You can add them to your salad to en­hance its flavour or just use it as a gar­nish on choco­late tortes.

Nas­tur­tium: With its mild pep­pery flavour, it makes for an ex­cel­lent pick­ling and culi­nary com­po­nent. You can also add them to desserts.

Marigold: Marigold can be added to sal­ads or used in cus­tards to give a cit­rusy touch.

Cro­cus flower: Apart from us­ing them in sal­ads and main course, you can also mix this bud in bev­er­ages like tea and wine for flavour­ing.

Snap Dragon: This fra­grant flower adds a punch to your food. Mix it with liqueur, cranberry and lots of ice to make a de­li­cious drink or add to piz­zas and pies to give a fresh twist.
