Before we get started, here are 4 FAQs:

How should I store them?

Edible flowers are best stored in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator.

Edible flowers can either be used whole or their petals can plucked from the center and used alone.  You can decide what would look and taste best depending on the variety and size of the flower.
