Apple blossoms are red-pink blossoms, averaging about 1.5 centimeters across, with yellow centers. Their flavor is sour and slightly sweet (evoking green apples), making them a good choice for cutting rich flavors or brightening up salads, desserts & cocktails (in terms of both color and flavor). They're sold on lengths of edible red stems.
Apple blossoms are more heat-tolerant than most flower varieties, making them a better choice for garnishing directly on hot food.
Store apple blossoms in their plastic clamshell in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
Apple blossoms can be used as a garnish or an ingredient. Their sour, slightly sweet flavor pairs well with tropical fruits, salads, cocktails, and rich ingredients like meats and seafood (especially scallops).
They withstand heat better than many other edible flower varieties – so they can be put directly on some hot foods.
Some edible flowers may wilt or change color when exposed to vinegar, so if using a vinegar-based dressing on salads containing edible flowers, test it on a few blossoms ahead of time and/or add it at the last second.
