“These will add a little spice to your life! The word nasturtium is Latin for nose twister. Everything but the root is edible.The young tender stems and leaves are good in salads, the chopped young leaves are delicious in sandwiches, the blossoms in fruit salads, and minced blossoms can be blended into creamed butter or cheese for use as a spread. A single seed in a cup of tea is delicious!”
