“The Flower Fairy”
Deep in the woods beside a little farm, live the Forest Fairies. They are subtle creatures: mild yet earthy, delicate yet woodsy, with smooth, velvety wings, and extremely good taste. This ray of summer sunlight is called The Flower Fairy: With its lovely fragrance, and brightly-coloured wings which grow around it in clusters, it’s like a beautiful savoury bouquet!
Our family’s favourite thing to make with these is a sweet and sour shrimp soup. Simply chop them up and add them into the broth, and see how the flavour expands! They pair perfectly with seafood, pork, ginger, soy, and garlic, making them ideal for Asian-inspired dishes. Store them in a paper bag in your fridge for up to a week.
