This Pickled Magnolia flowers recipe is quite simply, exquisite. I have used Magnolia soulangeana, Magnolia grandiflora and Magnolia stellata.
The texture and taste is nothing more than Love Food. Every person that has tasted this recipe (and that’s quite a few), remark how amazing the Magnolia flowers are.
Although the end result looks like pickled oysters in malt vinegar, the flavour will convert you as soon as it hits your taste buds.
