AFLORITA | Dehydrated calendula petals

Calendula, also known as Marigold, is an annual herbaceous plant. It has solitary flower heads that can reach 5 cm wide. They are visually striking for their intense colors: yellow and orange.

Among the medicinal properties of marigold petals, the one that stands out is its healing power. In Europe they used to make ointments for scars or wounds. It also serves as a tonic for the skin. In addition, if marigold petals are ingested as an infusion, it helps gastric ulcers and digestive problems. To learn more about the medicinal uses and properties of marigold, you can go to the article we published in our blog.

Pairing of the dehydrated calendula

Dehydrated marigold petals have a crunchy texture and an intense orange/yellow color. In the kitchen they can be used in different ways: in an infusion, in a chocolate bar (with orange), as a base for a sponge cake…etc. They can be combined with sweet, salty and even acidic ingredients.

Our recommendation is to re-hydrate the marigold petals so that they lose their rough texture, but they can also be used to break up textures in a dish. or simply to decorate.

How is the flower dehydrated?

Dehydration is another way of preserving calendula petals. It consists of softly dehydrating the edible flower, so we obtain a natural and crispy product. The main difference with the lyophilized calendula petals is that the dehydrated ones lose a bit of their shape due to the longer duration of the process.

To use dehydrated flowers in the kitchen, we have to re-hydrate them either with a sauce, a soup, in a cake’s dough…
