Calendula & Bachelor’s Button

If you’re up for something different this week, why not try an Elizabethian Herb & Flower Salad? The edible flowers included in this weeks CSA shares are Calendula and Bachelor’s Button. Unless using them for garnish, we recommend tearing the flower petals off of the flowers and scattering them on top of your favorite salad.

If you’re following the recipe we provided with shares this week, we also recommend going easy on the onions and radishes.

For more information on edible flowers, check out this horticulture information leaflet provided by North Carolina State University.  

Have a great week!

Elizabeth
