• Eat flowers you know to be consumable — if you are uncertain, consult a reference book on edible flowers and plants. • Eat flowers you have grown yourself, or know to be safe for consumption. Flowers from the florist or nursery have probably been treated with pesticides or other chemicals. • Do not eat roadside flowers or those picked in public parks. Both may have been treated with pesticide or herbicide, and roadside flowers may be polluted by car exhaust. • Eat only the petals, and remove pistils and stamens before eating. • If you suffer from allergies, introduce edible flowers gradually, as they may exacerbate allergies. • To keep flowers fresh, place them on moist paper towels and refrigerate in an airtight container. Some will last up to 10 days this way. Ice water can revitalize limp flowers.
