The surprising flowers

Borage grows as a weed in my pots, and during spring it blooms.

BorageThe flowers are small and collect them from the slightly thorny branches can be annoying...


...but once collected you will be fascinated by their bright and vivid color.

I dried these flowers to add them to my flowers tea, that I prepare different every year.

Ciao, ho appena inserito un link a Erbe in cucina nel mio sito, che tratta sia di fiabe che di ricette. Trovo che qui si respiri l atmosfera magica da giardino degli odori che stavo cercando per le mie Fate Mentate!

A Montaione (Fi) i fiori di borragine si friggono. Dopo aver lavato e asciugato i fiori si passano in una pastella di farina, acqua e un pizzico di sale. Si friggono in olio bollente e si spolverano con zucchero semolato. Sul blog Tuscany Holidays Montaione vi è il video con l’esecuzione della ricetta realizzata da Luciana Masi titolare del celebre ristorante Casa Masi: http://tuscanyholidaysmontaione.blogspot.it/2013/06/fiori-fritti-fried-flowers.html
