Home grown Nasturtium flowersA little while ago we asked our Facebook audience for their suggestions and recipes for using our wonderful Nasturtium crop, that had grown exceptionally well. As usual the audience didn't disappoint and they came up with some wonderful suggestions. Using them in salads was definitely the top answer but they also had a few yummy ideas we would never have thought of.

 

 

 

Make a BLT with Nasturtiums

Eat with sandwiches with cold mashed potato and Nasturtiums

Use Nasturtiums in salads, omelettes and stuff the flowers with cream cheese.

Curried egg sandwiches garnished with Nasturtiums

 Nasturtium pesto and Nasturtium and pea soup

I like to sugar Nasturtiums like violets

Freeze Nasturtiums in ice cubes and add to summer drinks

Can't say we ever tried this...
