Candied flowers are excellent treats by themselves or as natural toppings for cakes and pastries. Though there are a wide variety of edible flowers with which you can make this dish, you should be warned first and foremost that you should NOT acquire the flowers from a florist or other outlet that has used (or may have used) pesticides on their plants. If you are not sure, it's not worth it to hope for the best; these chemicals are poisonous. The best option is to grow them yourself or get them from an organic source that you know didn't use harmful chemicals. That said, use the petals of said flowers only unless you read somewhere else that other parts are tasty too. Enjoy!
