There are several flowers blossoms that can be
enjoyed both fresh and cooked. Only eat flowers when you are absolutely certain they are edible. Never eat a flower that has been treated with a pesticide that was not labeled for use on food products. Edible flowers should ideally be harvested in the cool, morning hours. If you are not going to be using the flowers immediately, cut them with the stems in tact and keep them in water. You could also store them in damp paper towels, in the refrigerator.
