    BecR's Note:

    Edible flowers provide a striking palette with which to decorate food. With a small garden of edible flowers you can make your canapés look like edible art. From Rosalind Creasy. Tip: Use a selection of organic edible flowers, 4 or 5 dozen: nasturtiums, borage, calendulas, pineapple sage, runner bean flowers, pansies, violas, violets, and mustard flowers. Herb leaves: sage, parsley, mint, dill, and basil.

    • 1/2 cup snipped fresh dill or 1/2 cup chives, leaves
    • 1 lb organic cream cheese, softened
    • 2 large loaf bread, unsliced (dense sandwich or rustic style bread, or 2 packages melba toast)

      In a mixing bowl, add the dill and 3 tablespoons of water to the cream cheese and mix until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more water.
    2. 2
      Trim the crusts off the bread and cut it into slices 1/3 inch (8 mm) thick.
    3. 3
      Cut the slices into large squares or rectangles 2½ to 3½ inches (6-8.5 cm) wide.
    4. 4
      Spread the cream cheese mixture on the bread—approximately 1 tablespoon per square—and arrange the squares on cookie sheets.
    5. 5
      Cover them lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to decorate.
    6. 6
      Carefully wash the flowers and herbs and gently pat them dry on paper towels. Lay them out on damp paper towels and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to use, but not for more than a few hours.

      Re-cover the canapés lightly with a plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving time.

      The canapés may be made a few hours in advance, but do not prepare them any earlier, or the garnishes will wilt.
