Candied flowers!

Zeal is quite the little gardener these days. All winter, he saved rain water in little pots, cups, and bowls because he read somewhere that rain water was much better for plants than tap water. With the nursing of his pet plants in the yard and the hot weather we've been having, he has officially ran out of the stuff. So it's a good thing that his nasturtiums came of age at just the right time.

Here's what he decided to do with them this year.

Rinse and make sure all the bugs are gone.

Separate the petals.

Paint the petals with a water/arrowroot mixture and dip in fine sugar.

Eat on top of salad!
