Nutritional values

Edible flowers not only look pretty, they also contain plenty of useful secondary plant compounds. Apricots are a good source of vitamin A, which we need for a well-functioning visual process and for beautiful skin. Apricots protect our body cells from free radicals and can counteract the development of cancer cells.

Outside the short elderflower season (May to July) you can use other large, edible flowers for the cakes, like dahlias, geraniums, carnations or marigolds. Flowers that you use for eating must not be sprayed! If you collect the flowers yourself, make sure that the plants are away from roads, so that they are free of pollutants.
