The golden-orange blossoms of the zucchini plant, predecessor to the zucchini vegetable, are a delicacy in both Mediterranean and Latin American cuisines. These bright summer flowers have a delicate, earthy flavor with grassy undertones that pairs best with cheese-based ingredients. Zucchini blossoms also make a wonderful garnish for soups and rice salads.
Firestix™ are the brightly colored flowers of the amaranth plant. The blossoms have a delicate, plume-like appearance and can be purple, magenta, red, gold and green in color. Its woody stems are approximately 15 centimeters in height. The flowers are entirely edible and have a neutral flavor that is mildly reminiscent of corn silk. The blossoms are also quite hardy and will retain their vibrant color and texture when exposed to heat or steam.
