Wild Mild Minty Pansy

Pansies among many other botanicals are edible. They are beautiful and bright and add an interesting pizazz to your salad or refreshing beverage. Pansies have a very mild minty flavor. Adding chopped pansies to ice tea or lemonade would be delightful, even floating a few on top is lovely. Homegrown pansies are the best to use to assure they are pesticide free.
