Honeysuckle flowers are the fragrant, trumpet-shaped blooms of the honeysuckle plant, which is native to Europe and Asia. They have a sweet and floral aroma, and are often used in traditional herbal medicine to support the respiratory and digestive systems.
They can be used in cooking to add a sweet and floral aroma to dishes such as desserts and cocktails, or can be used to make homemade tea blends. They can also be used as a natural food coloring to add a yellow or orange hue to dishes.
This flower has a honey-floral flavor, coupled with a pungent, fruity and warm (with hints of honey and ripe citrus) aroma.
