Calendula Flowers

This week in our CSA box, we received some of our favorites.  Kale, broccoli, beets, oranges.  We also received something we’d never gotten before…calendula flowers.  These are edible flowers that apparently have some medicinal value.  They are used by some for irritated skin or other types of inflammation.  Regardless of whether or not this is true, they taste great (mildly peppery and a bit floral) and make any salad look so much better.  We may just have to plant them in our own garden!
