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.
