Edible and Tasty Arugula Flowers

arugulaflowersEdible and Tasty Arugula Flowers:

Our winter vegetable garden is just about finished. This week I’m going to tear out most of it and plant tomatoes and a few other summer veggies.
I may keep some of the arugula that has gone to flower a little longer. Why?
  • arugula flower taste great in salads
  • bees love them
  • arugula self seeds readily
The flowers, which taste like the leaves, are a reminder of my favorite time of year: arugula season. Each year I curse myself for not planting more arugula.
Do you have a favorite edible flower?
