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.
