Fresh lovely covers that will pop on the outside of your kitchen window. I have gathered these certain flowers that will give the best fresh culinary ingredients you need to tie that dish together. Or you just want to add a healthy colorful zest of color to your dishes.
These flowers are great in window boxes, each flower pertain around the same amount of maintenance to keep up. Make sure you keep the soil damp and in cool and breezy height, but always let the sun give its start for photosynthesis for food (try not let the sun hit your kitchen window box for no more than up to 7 hours. Or the soil will dry out to quickly and your flowers fry). I find if you put a mini net around it you can keep the bugs out unless you would like to let the bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds come feed. A great way and easy way to get your good eats on! Below are my favorites I have by my window. To much in love with the taste I can add to my dishes for the free, and again you can find all these start-up kits at your local dollar store.
- Bee Balm (Monarda Didyma)- A wonderful flower with an awesome aroma, and to through fresh into salads. Did you know this flower can be used as a substitute for Sage in dry meat rubs, super good eats!
- Borage (Borago Officinalis)- This flower can have a universal use for culinary to baking, and you can even add in a bouquet or a wreath.
- Calendula (Calendula Officinalis)- You can get this flower in two vibrant colors of yellow and orange, each have a bit different taste, I lean towards the orange ones, they have my kind of taste, but if you like a citrus zest go yellow. Another universal uses for this flower, put in salads, a great substitute for saffron, even use in rice dishes. You can also grind up flower and stem for the oils to mix with olive oil for a medicinal use for bug bites and stings.
- Chives (Allium Schoenoprasum)- Great for giving color and a healthy taste your soup and salads from the flower to the stem. You can also take your stem and wrap your vegetables together for various culinary uses.
So give this awesome DIY project a try, to keep money in your pocket! I have found them great on desserts, salads, even give a vegan burger a twist….
