As a chef-in-training I love to use flowers in my cooking so why not witchcraft too! Flowers add a splash of colour, taste, and a little bit of whimsy. People have been using flowers in cooking all the way back to the Romans and ancient Greeks. Many cultures today still use them too; Indians use roses and Italians use artichoke flowers. The tastes also vary! Some add spice and others a sweetness.
Eating Flowers Safely
Eat flowers you know are definitely edible - if you’re uncertain look in a reference book.
Eat flowers you have grown your self or are consumption grade. Nurseries and florists commonly use pesticides on the flowers.
Do not use flowers you have found at a park or near the edge of a road as they may be contaminated by car pollution and pesticides.
Only eat the petals and remove the pistols and stamens before eating.
To keep the flowers fresh place them on a wet paper towel and keep them in the fridge for up to 10 days.
If your flowers wilt put in some ice water.

I use flowers in salads, on cakes, in cakes, and I sometimes pickle them too so the options are endless!
