Gorse Flower Snack

These little flowers are now starting to come out in force

A beautiful eyecatching flower it's also useful for it's edible properties. It makes a nice nibble although I wouldn't eat too much as it contains some slightly toxic alkaloids. It used to be a tradition over here to gather them at easter and dye white eggs yellow!
I have read that it's supposed to taste like coconut, but I definitely don't find that as I love coconut! To me it's got a slightly bitter taste but not that unpleasant, it can also be used to make tea, but there are better brews out there!
