Always be sure that flowers are edible before trying them, adding to food or experimenting for food decoration.

Use natural ingredients for recipes and edible flowers that grew far from highways, busy roads and industrial facilities.

Use organic flowers in edible flower cuisine.

Do not eat flowers from your own garden if you sprayed plants with chemicals.

Use only flower petals for cooking or food decoration. Pistils and stamens are usually not edible flower parts. Even petal parts of edible flowers that is close to the base can have bitter, unpleasant taste, so sometimes it is better to cut them off, especially for decorating desserts.
