5 Ways To Use Edible Orchids


There are many flowers, plants, and herbs that are edible, and many of these flowers and plants are unique and not commonly found in most dishes. They can offer a variety of health benefits and they taste good, too. If you've never tried edible orchids, you may want to give them a try. You can find them at specialty food stores online and in person. Here are some of the ways in which you can use edible orchids: 

Make a Delicious Tea

If you're someone who likes experimenting with different tea flavors, you're going to enjoy edible orchids. You can use these flowers in your teas to add more flavor and liven up other teas. 

Improve the Look of Your Dishes

With the use of edible flowers, you can make your dishes look even more appetizing. This is a nice extra touch if you're planning a special dinner with friends or family. Your dish will look so much more colorful and will stand out. 

Make Special Ice Cubes

You can also add edible flowers to your ice cube trays. This is a fun way to make your ice cubes look special. Whether you're making iced tea, lemonade, or serving water, this is a fun way to make your drinks look more attractive. It will also add a bit more flavor to your beverage as the ice begins to melt in your drink.

Garnish Your Cocktails

If you enjoy drinking unique cocktails and tend to serve liquor at family or friend gatherings, you'll want to stock up on edible orchids and other edible flowers. An edible flower makes the perfect garnish on top of your cocktail. It will be even more fun than a paper umbrella or straw. 

Add to Salads

Whether you're making a big entree salad for dinner or you're serving side salads for lunch, edible orchids are a great addition. You can add more color and pop to your salad without having to add something that needs to be removed. Tell your guests it's totally fine to eat the whole salad, including the flowers! They will be amazed. 

If you have yet to experiment with edible flowers, now is a good time to start doing so. You can add them to dishes, drinks, and use them as garnishes to wow your family and close friends. Visit a specialty food store that has edible orchids for sale in your area.
