Late Spring – Early Summer
Micro honeysuckle flowers are long, thin orangeish-pink blossoms with a flavor that starts off quite sweet with a finish that evokes fresh snap peas, with slightly peppery & bitter finish.
Each honeysuckle blossom is approximately 1 ½” long and almost ½” wide at its widest point (the opening at the end of the flower).
Store micro honeysuckle flowers in their plastic clamshell in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
Honeysuckle flowers’ sweetness makes them a natural for garnishing desserts (especially less sweet ones, so the flowers don't take things over the top). Their snap-pea-esque flavor also makes them an excellent choice for garnishing vegetable dishes or tossing in salads. Of course, they can also be used to decorate a huge variety of other savory dishes.
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.
