The custom of having Chrysanthemums as food

In many places of China, it has been made a custom to have chrysanthemum as food. With sweet scent and soft and refreshing taste, chrysanthemum is a fine choice for dishes. It can be eaten fresh, dry, raw or well-done, and cooked in almost every means. It also tastes good when shredded and stuffed into chrysanthemum cookies and dumplings. Chamomile and white chrysanthemum are usually adopted for making food, especially the latter one. For example, the Hangzhou White Chrysanthemum, Tribute Chrysanthemum of Mount Huang and White Chrysanthemum of Fushan are all of top grade.
