What is it?

Nasturtium is known for its peppery-tasting, pungent, flat leaves and colorful, trumpet shaped blossoms (see the orange flower at the center of the picture above). Although unrelated, it is usually grouped with cress because of its similar flavor. Nasturtium is always eaten fresh, and they give “bite” to savory foods. The flowers are also edible and range in color from golden to deep red mahogany. In European and North American culinary tradition, nasturtium is often combined with butter or cream cheese to make tea sandwiches, and the seeds can be pickled as an alternative to capers.
