A wonderful oil courtesy of Edward Tuson and Peter Zambri, co-chefs, Sooke Harbour House, Sooke, British Columbia. Use in salad dressings, rice or pasta, use your imagination! :D Cook time is marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups red nasturtium petals (or petals-other colors may be used too)
  • 1 cup safflower oil (or other neutral oil)
  • 1 garlic clove, skinned (optional)

Directions

  1. Pour all the ingredients into a blender. Blend at high speed until smooth and colorful, about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour the mixture into a glass jar and let sit for 2 days in a cool, dark place. The petals will settle to the bottom.
  3. You may strain and use the clean oil, or stir and use with the flower petals.
