Ingredients: 100% foraged daylily
Freeze-dried daylily carefully picked in the wilderness around Kobarid, Slovenia. After picking we freeze them and then slowly vacuum-dry them on room temperature max. This way all the nutrients stay locked in. Re-hydrate before use for 1 hour then use as fresh, or just use freeze-dried instantly.
Our flowers are edible and grown organically on our small scale family farm. Every flower is hand picked and arranged by us. We do not use any additives, preservatives, pesticide or chemical in the product nor process.
Now, about freeze-drying. We snapfreeze everything as soon as we can, this locks in nutrients and flavour, but also preserves the shape and colour of the flowers best. The blooms are then transferred to a freeze-dryer where they will sit quite a while, up to a few days. The freeze-dryer applies enormous vacuum which enables the drying process to happen without high temperatures. First we “heat” to a few C° and we finish at max 30C°. Astronauts who go to space eat freeze-dried food, and now you do too if you buy a jar 🙂
The blooms are very versatile, just press them onto a (cup)cake, put it on your cocktail or use it as a final garnish on your plate. You can also freeze them back in ice cubes, candy them or just give them as a special gift.
The product should be stored airtight at room temperature and keeping it in the dark will preserve the colours. It is safe to eat them technically forever, however they are best consumed by 6 months.
