Garlic Flower Oil: Finely chop the flowers, place in a small jar. Add a little lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt. Cover with olive oil (or half sunflower oil, half olive oil) and refrigerate.

Broiled Tomatoes: 1 tsp garlic flower oil + half a tomato + Parmesan cheese = a remarkable light first course. Bake 15 minutes at 425°.

Rice: 1 tsp garlic flowers + 2 c. very hot plain rice = a delicious surprise!

Potatoes: One baked potato + 1/2 tsp garlic flowers + sour cream to taste. Or dare add a touch of garlic flower oil to your mashed potatoes.

Spread slices of crusty bread with garlic flower oil as you would for bruschetta.

Enliven salads, poultry, and fish.

Combine 1 level tsp of garlic flowers with 1/2 c. cream cheese or plain goat cheese.

Replace the pesto in pasta dishes with a little garlic flower oil and grated Parmesan.

Use garlic flowers to replace garlic in garlic butter for a delicious, more subtle and more digestible alternative.

Add some garlic flowers or garlic flower oil to cooked vegetables just before serving.
