|From:||International Flower Bulb Centre|
Preparation time : 20 minutes|
Begonia flowers are all edible, crunchy. They have an excellent slightly acid taste, somewhere between lemon and some vinegars tastes, which asks to be mixed with sweet mixtures. Uncooked, they can be added to fresh cream yogurt and white sauces; they also can be cooked in creamy vegetable soups. Begonias grow in gardens, on terraces and balconies downtown, to the delight of everyone as their blooming season goes from July to the fall.
The ones grown in greenhouses, can be found all year long; they are grown as edible flours by the new farmers.
