I love nasturtiums [pronounced nas-TER-shums].
I love the yellow ones and the orange ones and the dark dark red ones. I like the regular leaves and the dark leaves and the spotty leaves.
I like them viney and I like them short. I like them planted with sweet potato vines.
And they're good on salads. They have a peppery zing, so be prepared.
Wash the leaves and flowers carefully and toss them on a sandwich.
Or mix up some cream cheese with enough sour cream or yogurt to make it easily spreadable and pipe it inside the flowers for a summer appetizer.
