Dear Folks,

I am pleased to be speaking this Saturday at Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market on "Edible Flowers" part of "Original Arizona" at the Market.

Mothers' Day, Herbs, Flowers and just what IS an Edible Flower?

Join Catherine, The Herb Lady at the 

Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market
(3806 N Brown Avenue – the SW Corner of Brown & 1st Street)
on May 11, 2019, Saturday from 9 -10AM (The Mothers' Day Market).

National Herb Week, which celebrates herbs in all of their usefulness and glory, ends on Mother's Day.  This is fitting as most beloved culinary herbs have delicious and beautiful flowers, and flowers are what many Mother's love and many families enjoy gifting.

What Is An Edible Flower?
It could be a vegetable, like an artichoke, broccoli, or caper. 
It could be one of the old garden favorites, like hollyhock, stock, marigold, jasmine, pansies, or nasturtiums.
It could be an herb, meaning a plant with beneficial properties, like hibiscus, rose, lavender, dandelion, or one of the much-loved culinary herbs, including basil, rosemary, oregano, cilantro, dill, or thyme.

OR it could be all of the above.

Catherine will discuss edible flowers as pretty, fun, tasty (most are tasty), and safe additions or garnishes to enhance your meals. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson said: "The earth laughs in flowers."  Why not make them edible!
