Fresh Calendula Flowers
USDA Certified 100% Organic
The brilliant orange flowers of Calendula (Calendula officinalis ‘Alpha’) have been used since medieval times in place of saffron for cooking, and medicinally to improve eyesight, skin conditions, and mood. The tangy, peppery tasting petals radiate from a bright orange center and can be added fresh to savory dishes like eggs, cheese, soups, salads, poultry, and rice, as well as any sweets. The whole flower, which measures about 2-3 inches in diameter, can be used as a garnish or in tea and keeps its color when dried for later use.
