Yellow, golden, orange, brick-red, cherry-pink, salmon, crimson, and dark mahogany. The spicy-sweet Nasturtium flowers, or only the picked petals, add a perfect visual and flavor component to a variety of salads, entrées and desserts. They pair nicely with sweeter greens and add a refreshing bite to classic salads with potatoes, eggs, or seafood. To perk up the flowers, keep them in a small vase with water. Nasturtium flowers have delighted gardeners and cooks alike for centuries. At different times in their history, they’ve been considered a vegetable, an herb, a flower, and even a fruit. Renaissance botanists named it after watercress, (Nasturtium officinale in Latin) which tastes similar. During the Victorian era, Nasturtium flowers were eaten to prevent scurvy since they are rich in Vitamin C. Nasturtium Flowers contain mustard oil, which has been used as a natural antibiotic. They can be chewed to soothe a sore throat and to ward off colds and flus. The flowers have also been known to alleviate respiratory congestion and to stimulate the digestive system.
