Edible bouquets Delphinium vegetable flowers
Edible Bouquets are not only beautiful, but tasty too. Instead of fresh flowers, try an arrangement of edible Delphinium flowers as a beautiful table decoration or as a garnish for your favorite dishes.
To make these vegetable flowers you will need: Daikon or Oriental radish, white radish, carrot or turnip for center of a flower, a knife, and a pair of scissors.
Step 1. Peel the radish. Use the knife to cut a cylinder 2-3 inches long out of a peeled radish. Next, cut 5 pieces of radish off all around the cylinder so you have something closer to the cone. Look at the picture example to see how its done.
Step 2. In a cone, make 5 thin petals with a bit of thickening at the bottom.
Step 3. Cut some pulp from the ribs as shown in the picture. Then make a second row of petals in a checkered pattern regarding the first row.
Step 4. Remove the remaining pulp in the middle. Use scissors to make edges of each petal wavy. Place a flower in solution of pink, blue or violet food coloring for several minutes.
Step 5. Using a toothpick, secure a carrot or turnip ball in the center of the flower.
You edible flower is ready! You can use these veggie flowers as garnishes for salads or other dishes.
Step 6. You can arrange a bouquet in a cute mug or vase using parsley leaves as foliage for your veggie bouquet.
I would love to see your veggie bouquets inspired by this one! Please share and send a picture of your veggie bouquets to this email.
