  5. What a lovely name. We used to gather these flowers from the country lanes, when we were children in England, and my mom would put them in a vase. Soon, the flowers would drop bits everywhere. 😉 I didn’t know that they had a use in the kitchen, but they’re very pretty.

  7. I’m sure – correct me if I’m wrong – but wasn’t Meadowsweet used as a strewing herb (i.e. one which got thrown on the ground in communal eating halls etc.), rather than as a stewing herb? So far as I know, it’s culinary uses are as a flavour for beer, wine, vinegar and sometimes for jams. I just thought I should mention that, before someone decides to throw a great bunch in with their beef stew! LOL
