Edible Flower Popsicles

Bella was recently introduced to foraging and the world of edible wild plants.  She is attending Portland Waldorf Summer Camp and it is part of the summer curriculum.  She informed me that many of the flowers growing in our backyard are edible.  So we have been finding fun and creative ways to use edible flowers — in salads, as garnishes, and today we experimented with adding them to popsicles.

She gathered nasturtium and dandelions for our little kitchen experiment.

Popsicle supplies

We combined lemonade and flowers in our Quick Pop Maker for fast (7 minutes) refreshment.

The result was a pretty and delicious treat!

And a proud and happy forager!
