Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—your link does not have to be a recipe. If it’s about shopping for food, food allergies, your favorite childhood food, or the last book you read while eating food, that’s close enough. Link up! Think of it as a virtual pitch-in where you can sample what everyone brings and have a great time.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post and join us through Mr. Linky.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Food on Fridays with Ann
“Mom?” my youngest daughter called out, “are roses edible?”“The petals?” I asked.“Yes, rose petals.”I wasn’t sure. I knew rose hips are edible along with several other flowers like nasturtiums and maybe pansies. But I didn’t know about rose petals.Apparently they are. Assuming they are free from man-made pesticides, that is.This came up because my daughter, who loves reading the Redwall series, discovered some websites posting recipes of dishes mentioned in the books. Dishes like:
- Abbot’s Special Abbey Trifle
- Spiced Gatehouse Tea Bread
- Afternoon Tea Scones with Strawberry Jam and Cream
- Squirrelmum’s Blackberry and Apple Cake
- Savoury Nut Tea Bread Squares
- Guosim Shrew Shortbread
- Rose Pudding
- Candied Rose Petals
And there they were—recipes calling for rose petals.Intrigued, she asked if she could try exploring some of the recipes at this website.I’d like to support her interest. To do so, it looks like I need to swing by Kroger to pick up both flour and flowers.Have you ever cooked with flowers? I’d welcome your advice!
