What would I do with blossoms all year long? That would certainly be so nice~
They make everything look so feminine and pretty~
I love that lilacs are edible..the colors..The taste is not wow.. I must admit..it's almost insignificant to me..which makes lilacs even better for people who abhor strong tastes..It is ever so subtle~♥
The fragrance stands alone in a bouquet..Much Like Lily Of The Valley~
I used the Pomegranate scone recipe I linked you to a while back..
But used blueberries..and the lilacs..the recipe originates fro All Recipes..
But I found it here:Right Here..
Do the same thing..but use blueberries..I made some with dried cherries also~
Use fresh blueberries..frozen hold too much water.
Fresh as can be.
Sit..pour yourself a cup of lovely tea..or a cup of coffee..eat them as is or with butter or additional jam~
Pressing lilacs works very well too..if you're pressing:)
And drying lilacs for future use to brighten up salads ..scones etc..is proving easy..they will dry up and lose all their shape but retain a vivid color..
A Google search will lead you to many edible flowers..
Fun to experiment..Remember though..pesticide free..Our community has been for yrs..so I know our lilacs are..
Have a nice weekend~
PS the lilacs are early this yr..I know as I married amongst them at my parent's home on June 8th 39 yrs ago..
Those things.. you remember:)
