Wonderful Lilac Flower Recipes

Beautiful & Seasonal Lilac flower recipes

Lilac flowers are an edible flower abundant in the springtime. After we planted a lilac hedge, I was looking for ways to use up these pretty flowers other than having them at our table. You can use lilacs as an ingredient in many kitchen recipes, as well as home body care products.

Lilacs have a fragrant scent that can be infused into your kitchen
