Nasturtiums: Beautiful And Tasty!

I am so happy to have nasturtiums growing in my garden this year!

This my first experience with growing nasturtiums. They have not taken any special care. I just water them and weed them.

Nasturtium blossoms and leaves are edible. They can be cooked or eaten raw. I add the flower petals to salads.

They have a peppery flavor that I really didn't expect. They add bold color, as well as, bold flavor to salads.

Have you ever grown nasturtiums?
Have you ever eaten nasturtiums?
Do you know of any recipes that call for nasturtiums?

Let me know in the comments section!
