Cut & Sifted
Cornflower is a member of the daisy family noted for its vibrant azure blue flowers. The plant is called cornflower because it naturally occurs near field crops, namely corn. The plant is also known as Bachelor's Button and Boutonniere Flower because young men once wore the flower in the label of their jacket to draw attention to their eligibility status.
Today, cornflower petals are added to tea blends, potpourri, baked goods, soups, salads and custards, or are frozen in decorative ice cubes for iced beverages.
