For now we are back at home and re-exploring our neighbourhood with new eyes, after being abroad for 14 months! I am on the lookout for simple homemade projects and it can’t get much simpler and effective than adding a bit of colour to your drinks by making edible floral ice cubes.
To make a bit more of an impact I found a giant-sized ice cube tray from Kmart ($2!) which also helps the ice cubes to stay in your drink longer, rather than instantly melting. I used Petunias and Begonias, which are actually considered edible flowers! Any type of flower is edible as long as it isn’t poisonous or cause a negative reaction. Sometimes parts of the flower may need to be removed before eating. You can find a useful list of edible flowers and more information here.
Edible flowers can also be used in cooking and in salads and are a great way to brighten up your dishes and drinks this summer festive season. What are some ways that you have used flowers in your kitchen?
