Edible Flowers - Dianthus

Dianthus, in their many colours, shapes and sizes has to be one of my all time favourite edible flowers. For such a small bloom both their scent and flavour are amazing, like a spicy sweetness that means they work well in so many dishes.

Colours: Pinks, whites, reds, purples
Flowering time: Summer and autumn

Ideas for use: Crystallised, cupcakes and desserts, floated in cocktails.
