    French Tart's Note:

    This fruit salad is amazing, and all the more for the addition of bergamot leaves and flowers! The fragrant leaves of this versatile herb delicately flavour the syrup whilst the gorgeous shaggy red flowers and scented pelargonium leaves decorate it for the final finishing flourish! If you are a lover of Earl Gray tea, you will instantly recognise the flavour of this herb, as it is used to flavour this famous and popular tea blend. NOTE: Bergamot, often referred to as bee balm, became distinguished as "Oswego Tea" when a Quaker botanist, John Bartram, sampled a tea made from the leaves. A Bergamot lemon is a small yellow sour citrus fruit similar to an orange, mostly cultivated in Calabria in Italy. The rind contains an essential oil used in perfumery (the basis for eau-de-cologne), confectionary and Earl Grey tea. The zest is also used in pâtisserie. NB: Prep time includes cooling time.

      I enjoyed this recipe prepared with scented pelargonium leaves syrup (as described int the recipe) with the plants we bought on Greece with roses flavour.<br/>As fruits I used: strawberries, red and black currants (frozen), orange and apples.<br/>This was a lovely combination, gave a special exotic taste to the 4 seasons salad:<br/>Apples for fall, strawberrys for spring, oranges for winter and currants for summer!
