  3. Store in a cupboard for at minimum one week, and the longer the better is best.

Use in salad dressings, over steamed fish, drizzled with oil over sauteed vegetables, in a sweet dressing on exotic fruits like papaya, mango, kiwi etc. and in any other imaginative ways you can come up with.

My Latest Book is Now Available on Amazon as a Paperback or Kindle

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.

  1. Maybe a silly question but do you leave the petals in until the vinegar is all used up? Or remove them at some point? And thank you for the interesting suggestion!
