  • Lots of our customers press their own edible leaves, but with our new range, we’re doing the hard work, so you don’t have to.

    Our range of pressed edible leaves can be used on a multitude of sweet treats, drinks, cake decoration and desserts. In addition, add a natural look to your bakes with pressed leaves, a style that happens to be trending at the moment. Pressed edible leaves such as Pineapple and Lemon Verbena, can also be steeped into teas to give them a fruity taste and aroma. In addition, any left-over edible leaves from your culinary creations work well in potpourri for an added citrus fragrance.

  • While fresh bunched herbs add bright flavours and colour to many dishes, and some are simply irreplaceable, some meals taste better with dried herbs. Spruce Eats suggests that of you’re making a sauce, stew or soup that will bubble away on the stove or in the over for more than a few minutes, our dusting powders can add a nice flavour. Herbs such as Oregano, Marjoram, Thyme, Rosemary, Bay Leaf and Fennel are pungent in both flavour aroma and when used as powders.

    Our Edible Flowers Dusting Powders can be used as a garnish on a variety of dishes and drinks. For example, try adding Calendula or Rose Edible Flower Dust to the rim of a glass, for a unique spin on traditional cocktails.

It's so handy having pre pressed edible flowers, they are the perfect addition to our brownies.
