Nasturtium ~ This flower has a pepper scent and its colorful yellow, orange and red petals can be tossed in a salad. The whole blossoms can be stuffed with savory mousse; the petals can be shredded and added to risotto or mixed with olive oil and combined with cooked pasta; the leaves taste similar to watercress.
