NASTURTIUM

  • Nasturtium leaves make beautiful wedding cake decorations.

  • To make a nasturtium leaf pesto, boil the leaves, give them an ice bath, dry them, then blend with toasted pine nuts, parmesan, garlic and olive oil.

  • The Latin name for nasturtium, nasi tortium – that which twists the nose - derives from the flower’s pungent smell.
