Did you know you could eat a flower? Well, I didn’t. But guess what: you can!
There are some kinds of flowers that you can eat — and some you can’t. If you’re not sure, ask a grown-up which ones are okay. That’s what I did.
In fact, I ate a flower today! It was a zucchini blossom.
Where does it actually come from? In the beginning, it grows in the ground. Then when it’s ready, the farmer picks it and brings to the farmer’s market. That’s where we got ours.
When I first saw the flowers, I thought they would be gross to eat. It turns out I was kind of right.
We cooked the flowers and baby zucchini with some olive oil and lemon. I liked the baby zucchini, but I didn’t like the flowers. They tasted like something, but they did not taste like ANYTHING I’ve ever had.
In a couple weeks, I’m going to try a different kind of flower. I’ll let you know how that goes.
Do you think it’s cool that you can eat a flower?
