Nasturtiums (Tropaeolum majus) are plentiful in my garden this year, and so are ideas for using them. Petals are great to make "stained glass" pasta, and flowers and young leaves have given me a bright orange, spicy vinegar.
Seeds are edible too: they are called poor man's capers. The seeds you see in the photo are currently in a couple of glass jars, immersed in distilled white vinegar, and will soon be ready for tasting. I'll let you know the outcome of the experiment.
The photo is my contribution to edition #89 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook, now organized by Cinzia of Cindystar, and hosted this week by Lynne of Cafe Lynnylu.
The photo was shot in color using Instagram on my iPhone and then converted to black and white (Lightroom preset Split Tone 1).
This post contains the gallery of images contributed to the event.
