Cornflower Petals Dried Blue Standard Jar 5g Steenbergs details and description

Steenbergs dried cornflower petals are a gorgeous edible flower. They are a fantastic blue colour.  Dried cornflower petals are a great finishing sprinkle to any cuisine, so use as a garnish in food - be it salads, cakes, rice etc wherever you feel the need for the exotic blue colour.

Conflower petals come from Centaurea cyanus, a small annual flowering plant, the cornflower.  Cornflowers are annuals that grow to 40-90cm (16-35 inches), have 1-4cm long lanceolate leaves and intensely blue flowerheads that are 1-3cm (1 inch) in diameter.  Weirdly the blue comes from protocyanin which also gives the red in rose blossom.  The flowerhead structure in cornflowers is a ring of large spreading ray florets around a central cluster of disc florets.  The flowers of cornflowers are edible and used to colour salads or add a ray of colour to teas, such as Steenbergs Earl Grey.  For more gen on cornflower, try Wikipedia.
