Re: Edible Flowers
You probably have sorted this all out by now, but I can recommend a
book "Edible Flower Garden" or (something like that), by Rosalind
Creasy. It's modern, not historical, but will tell you what is edible,
so you know what to look for in period literature. It has lots of
recipes with pretty pictures, so it's fun to look at even if you
Best of all, you can probably find it in your local library.
Good luck :)

remedy: a nip of gin! Was never too comfortable with that idea..
