As I look at the flowers beginning to bloom and read Suzanne's post about her lilac jelly, I'm wondering if my roses just beginning to bud and other flowers would make good tasting jelly.
First, anyone got a list of edible flowers? Also, do they have much flavour? They certainly can be pretty but are they just a novelty or can they actually be nice to have on your toast?
Herb jellies--I have a ton of mint but don't exactly like mint jelly. Any other ideas? I make and freeze pesto from fresh basil or pasley (and boy are the good to eat in January!). I'd like to use some of my other herbs in sweet or savory jellies. Any other recipes to suggest? Can I make small batches of little gem-like jellies to give as Christmas gifts?

Some flowers are good and have flavor, others are spicy, while others are sweet!
I like bee balm jelly for its beautiful burgundy color. I also like lavender, violet, rose, nasturtium, honeysuckle, hibiscus, dandelion, peony!
A trio of small jelly jars would make a great holiday gift!
I love mint and lemon water or adding mint to my iced tea. Also hot mint tea! Also good for a bath tea soak!
