FOOD: Incredible, Edible Flowers

E885disc 01 0416 Food Meadowsweets 1 152
Spring is finally here, and if you'd like to bring some nature to your event without dealing with unpredictable weather, Meadowsweets' real crystallized flowers can bring the season's foliage indoors. The Middleburgh, N.Y.-based company grows roses, violas, pansies, wild thyme and Johnny jump-ups, and then crystallizes them by hand. The flowers are commonly used as adornments for cakes and other desserts. And the best part: They're completely edible. The cost for each flower, depending on type, size and availability, starts at $1, with a minimum order of $30.
