Hi aodonnell--Johnny-Jump-Ups are basically a salad item. You can mix them into any salad of your choosing. You can also use them as a garnish for many different foods. Here are some examples: Sprinkle fresh pineapple and kiwi slices with kirsch and decorate with johnny jump-ups. Garnish cottage cheese and fruit salads with johnny jump-ups. Garnish rice puddings and custards with johnny jump-ups. Decorate a frosted cake with johnny jump-ups. Surround scoops of orange, pineapple or lemon sherbet wtih johnny jump-ups and mint leaves. Circle pale-coloured dips or spreads (tuna, avocado, cream cheese) with johnny jump-up flowers. Garnish plates of smoked or poached salmon with johnny jump-up flowers.

If you have a sweet tooth, you can also candy them. Here is a link to a recipe:

You could candy them too. Crystallized/Candied flowers make beautiful decorations for desserts and can last up to one year. Not only do they taste amazing, but they add an elegant, romantic, and delicious touch to virtually every dessert. Using a small paint brush, paint the flowers with egg whites and sprinkle them with very fine sugar.Store them in a cool dark place and voila! Candied Johnny Jump ups.
