Taste: Carnations are a popular flower with a little spice: there is a hint of clove and nutmeg to its taste, with a more bitter flavour from the base. The colourful blooms have also best been described as sharp and sweet. The petals may also a release a faint ever green aroma.

Uses: Carnation flowers can be added whole, or the petals can be sprinkled over a variety of fresh and cooked dishes. Separate the petals and use as a raw garnish to elevate cakes, salads and pies. Further to sweet applications, add the edible flowers into cocktails, sorbets or syrups. Carnation petals can also be lightly cooked and paired up with meats, spices and cheeses.

Health Benefits: Carnation edible flowers are traditionally used in tea to relieve stress, anxiety and sickness. According to Specialty Produce, Carnations have been said to offer anti-inflammatory properties, which has helped reduce inflammation and balance out hormones.
