Available Year Round
Purple shiso flowers are tiny purple flowers grown on sprigs of purple shiso (aka purple mint). Each sprig is cut to a length of approximately 4”.
Purple shiso has a different flavor profile than green shiso – tasting less like a combination of herbs and instead more like a combination of spices (ginger, cumin, and cinnamon). These flowers can be left on the sprig for garnishes, or delicately stripped from the sprig and sprinkled on to dishes.
Shiso flower sprigs are the perfect aromatic garnish for cocktails.
Store purple shiso flowers in their plastic clamshell in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
The spice-like flavor of purple shiso pairs well with acidic ingredients like vinegar, citrus juices, and white wine. However, it’s important to remember that many flowers don’t react well to direct content to high-acid ingredients. So if using a high acid dressing on salads containing shiso flowers, test it on a few blossoms ahead of time and/or add it at the last second.
