EDIBLE FLOWERS

Edible flowers should become a part of our everyday cuisine. They offer another alternative to salt and sugar as seasoning. Not only do they have aesthetic value as decoration, but they also have a lot of nutritional value. The flowers grown at Full Nature Farms are safe for consumption because of the condition it is grown in.
