So let’s be very careful about what flowers we reach for when preparing meals in our kitchen. We should be róAlso be careful when it comes to eating flowersów for ailments such as asthma, allergies or acute hay fever.

However, if the vision of dishes with the addition of edible flowersów will appeal to us, we should think about establishing a home gardenódka. We will then be sure that those used in the preparation of dishes will not harm us.
