How to add color (and flavor!) to your dishes by growing your own edible flowers

A renewed interest in gardening has sprouted up as people are spending more time at home due to shelter-in-place orders. It seems to have originated from both a desire to be more self-sustaining, as well as the basic need for a hobby that takes one's mind off, you know, the global pandemic.

And for people who don't have yard space or a community garden, small herbs have long been a popular choice to exercise their green thumbs. This year, I'm adding a little color to the farm of potted herbs on my balcony by trying my hand at edible flowers.

In addition to being beautiful, many edible flowers — like herbs — can elevate food and drinks with unexpected pops of flavor.
