Nasturtiums in the Kitchen

Nasturtium flowers are easy to grow here in the Midwest, USA.  They really are effortless, provide nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies, and both leaves and flowers are edible. I find there is no need to spray them either, so they are totally organic and pesticide free.

Here are a couple ideas.  The first is just as a garnish for almost anything.  Here with vanilla ice cream.  I've also put them on cakes, salads, and omelettes.
