The ultimate edible flower as the leaves, flowers, stems and seeds are all edible. Nasturtiums are a fast growing annual and incredibly easy to grow. They are related to the cress family and have a fantastic strong, peppery taste.  The flowers and leaves are commonly eaten as part of a salad but there are many other uses including to decorate cheeses, to make nasturtium pesto, soups, stuffed nasturtium flowers and pickling the seeds to make ‘Poor Man’s Capers’.
