Borage

Bees love the bright blue blooms of this distinctly hairy herb and its star-shaped flowers have a sweet honey flavour that tastes remarkably similar to cucumber. The uncanny resemblance makes it the perfect partner to a refreshing Pimm’s or lemon sorbet. Paired with ricotta cheese it becomes a fantastic pasta filling as well as looking lovely when sprinkled into a summer salad.
