Queen Anne's lace

Queen Anne's Lace is a wild, edible and nutritious plant. It is also called "Wild Carrot” because carrots were once cultivated from this plant. It is native from Europe and it grows in dry fields and open areas. 

 

Queen Anne's Lace is best known for its flowers, which are tiny and white, blooming in lacy, flat-topped clusters. Each little flower has a dark, purplish center. Flower clusters and leaves can be chopped and tossed into a salad. 

 

Queen Anne’s lace is high in sugar and it can be used to sweeten puddings and other foods.
