They have a delightful peppery taste and are light. Love them!

They are similar to capers, but not tart since they are not pickled. They are wonderful. The flower buds can be pickled like capers. I believe the whole plant is edible.

Thank you both! I'm a huge fan of capers and I pickle everything. I will add to my food list. : )

I love what Helen'sAND shared. In my mouth nasturtium don't take like capers at all, not that I am against capers. Of course I am one of those people who experience cilantro tasting like soap.
