  • Edible flowers are not just pretty, but tasty!

    Some edible flowers have such robust flavours that they need to be paired with the right foods

    or drinks in order to let those flavours sing.

  • Here are Nurtured in Norfolk’s list of top 10 edible flowers:

    1. Oyster Leaf

    Oyster Leaf

    As salty and fresh as it sounds. The leaves produce an incredible flavour of the sea with

    definite hints of oyster, hence the name. This works very well with actual oysters or any fish

    dish. Also works well with wild mushrooms and surf and turf.

    2. Buzz Buttons

    Buzz Buttons

    Prepare for a multi-sensory experience. The tongue tingling tiny petals are usually pulled off

    the buttons and added to desserts, salads and cocktails, creating a completely different

    dimension to any dish.

    3. Velvet Coral

    Velvet Coral

    Stunning edible flowers from the Amaranth family. Flavoured with strong autumnal notes.

    Steam boil similar to a vegetable, then use in salads or as a garnish.

    4. Chop Suey

    Chop Suey

    Pleasant aromatic umami flavour, with notes of celery and carrot. You can pair this with meat

    dishes, but it also works very well with fish and sushi.

    5. Mimulus


  • These vibrant flowers deliver a unique addition when decorating dishes. They are both

    colourful with a delicate fragrant flavour.

    6. Fuchsia


    With their graceful shapes and vibrant colours, these flowers are beautifully eye-catching

    when used in salads or cake decorating. The petals can also be crystallised or inserted into jelly

    or ice for a visually unique effect.

    7. Fennel Flowers

    Fennel flowers

    Intense bright yellow colour with a subtle taste of liquorice. Pair with fish dishes, salads or

    even sprinkled over roast potatoes.

    8. Orchids


    These flowers are naturally beautiful, and come in a range of vivid colours, so they’re often

    used as a stunning decoration on statement cakes, cocktails and salads.

    9. Mushroom Leaf

    Mushroom Leaf

    These leaves work really well in stews, soups and salads. They contain all the flavour of

    mushroom without the texture, and are packed full of vitamin C, iron and beta carotene with a

    texture similar to spinach. The leaves contain a high amount of protein, so are ideal for a vegan

    and vegetarian diet.



    10. Ice Plant

    Ice Plant

    This juicy and succulent sea herb packs a punchy flavour of salt, therefore it naturally pairs

    well with fish and seafood dishes. Can be blanched to reduce the saltiness, or eaten raw.
