Primrose Sweet Potato Rice
Winter is upon us!!! Some plants ended of their life, some just begun. Primrose is one that's blooming right now in our hot house. 🌺🌼💐
Primrose symbolise youth or young love, or mean "I can't live without you." Primula vulgaris (the one grow in my hot house), the whole plant is edible. They can be eaten raw in salads or as an edible garnish, and can also be made into conserves (preserves).
In traditional herbal medicine, cowslip wine, made from P. veris, was used as a sedative. The flowers was used to treat palsy as well as nervousness. The juice of the flowers, either used alone or combined with other ingredients into an ointment, was supposed to be effective at treating facial spots and wrinkles.
I love the way the flower petals combine with rice, sweet potato, nuts, and honey. it's a light with sweet and savoury dish can refresh your day.🪴
