- Edible Flowers (e.g. violas, pansies, nasturtium, mustard flowers, herb flowers, calendula petals, rose petals)
Make sure your edible flowers were organically grown without chemical pesticides or fertilizers. We’ll be selling our locally-grown edible flowers at the Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market on Sundays from 9 am-1 pm at 1st and R St. NW starting the first week of May. Freeze your ice cubes in layers to make sure your flowers show through the ice. Start with a very thin layer of water on the bottom of the ice cube tray. We used silicone trays to make it easier to remove the cubes once frozen. Place your flowers face down (so they will be face up once the cubes are popped out) and then freeze for several hours until well frozen. Add another layer of water to fill the cubes about halfway and freeze again. Finally, fill up the rest of the tray and freeze once last time. Remove and enjoy in with sparkling water or your favorite cocktail!
