I have had a soft spot in my heart for chrysanthemums ever since a hot and sweaty summer as an intern at Kono & Sons growers in Carpenteria, California in, oh about 1985. 20 years ago. Yeesh. I AM old.
But I have never, ever eaten chrysanthemum leaves or even seen them at Farmer's Market before this week.
I looked online and found some interesting stuff at the Hormel website, of all places.
I also dug up a recipe at Sweet baby media that sounds beautiful and interesting. It is a Korean dish.
I didn't buy any chrysanthemum leaves because I didn't know what to do with them. Next week I will pick some up and let you know how the recipe goes.
