Food flowers - Illinois TimesThursday, May 02, 2019
Make sure that the flowers you eat or cook with have not been sprayed or treated, and never eat roadside flowers or those purchased from a florist. Flower jelly 2-3 cups loosely packed flower petals, such as violet, rose, sunflower, dandelion or nasturtium. (Be sure to pinch off only the petals and discard the base of the flower, as it can give the jelly a bitter taste.) Juice of one lemon2 ½ cups boiling water 1 package of Sure-Jell pectin (you can certainly use a different kind of pectin, but you may need to adjust the recipe method according to the package directions) 3 ½ cups sugar Sort through the flower petals and rinse them gently under running water to remove any dirt or bugs. Place the flower petals in a heat-proof bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Let the flower “tea” steep for at least two hours or overnight. Prepare a water bath canner and have ready six half-pint jars with new lids and bands. After the mixture has steeped, strain it through a fine meshed sieve into a nonreactive saucepan and discard the flower solids. Add the lemon juice (this may cause the color of your tea to brighten or change hue). Slowly stir in the pectin and bring to a full rolling boil. Boil for one minute, then add all the sugar at once. Stirring continuously, return to a boil and cook for one minute. Ladle the hot mixture into the clean, hot jars. Wipe the rim of the jars, then place a lid on top and gently screw on the band (do not put it on super tight). Process in the water bath for five minutes, then remove from the water and set out onto a towel to cool overnight. As the jars cool you should hear an occasional “pop” coming from the jars, indicating a good seal has been achieved. *for rose jelly, add a tablespoon of rose water to the rose petal tea to enhance flavor **add a ½ tablespoon or so of crushed red pepper flakes to nasturtium jelly for savory kick Ashley Meyer is a Springfield-based food writer, cook and avid gardener. https://illinoistimes.com/article-21169-food-flowers.html
Buying flowers for Mother's Day? Florists say do your research - WHECThursday, May 02, 2019
Here's how it works.You find a florist online that you think is local but they take a fee. Then they send your order to a middle man who also takes a cut. The florist you thought you were contacting in the first place then finally receives your order. However, because both parties take fees, the big bouquet you thought you were sending winds up not being so big."They spend $100, they get a $50 arrangement," said Melanie Longhitano, florist. "They're literally just there to take your order and after that, they have nothing to do with it." Flower shop owners say if you want to order online, make sure it's from a reputable site or go to the florists' actual website. ... https://www.whec.com/news/buying-flowers-for-mothers-day-florists-say-do-your-research/5334311/
Fleur Social wants to make Nuriootpa the brunch capital of the Barossa - InDailyThursday, May 02, 2019
Barossa their home.“One of Sarah’s life goals was to open a flower shop in the Barossa,” Ryan says.“We figured out maybe a florist isn’t going to work on its own, but… we’d always had this concept in the back of our heads of doing a coffee shop with it.”Ryan and Sarah could see there was room in the local market for the kind of considered café fare they wanted to offer.Fleur Social sources “about 90 per cent” of its menu from the Barossa – coffee is sourced from Barossa Coffee Roasters at Seppeltsfield; milk comes from Jersey Fresh Milk from Greenock; “all of our meat from within 20 kilometres, our eggs as well,” Ryan says.The shop opened in mid-January 2017, and was an immediate hit.“We opened the door and we actually had a line up out the door and down the laneway for the first eight hours of the first three days of trading. It was insane,” Ryan says.The café’s brunch fare is the kind of food we take for granted closer to the city – smashed avocado, bruschetta, pancakes, and a list of specialty bagels – and with it, Ryan and Sarah hope will begin to attract a younger demographic to Nuriootpa.“It’s all stemmed from that one idea of ‘How can we build the Barossa and how can we help make our mark on this region?’” Ryan says.“What we want to do long term is see the traffic and the visitation to the Barossa more in line with what you’re seeing in the Hills and what you’re seeing in McLaren Vale.”Fleur Social’s Laneway Brunch Series will happen next door to the shopFor this year’s Barossa Vintage Festival, Ryan and Sarah decided to make the most of the increased traffic into the region by putting together the... https://citymag.indaily.com.au/habits/plate-and-cup/fleur-social-barossa-vintage-brunch-series-rasa-wines/
