Not-so-fun fact, the bulbs of these little cutie patootie tulips were a part of a big cause – saving Dutchmen from starvation during the winter of WW2. Noble, weren’t they?
Yup, certain parts of a tulip are edible. Petals were used as garnishes, bulbs were eaten as is, or ground to make flour for baking – though they weren’t known to taste very good. That’s probably why they’re super popular these days in our vases but not on our plates.
⚠️ Note: For culinary dare-devils out there, do not eat the ones in your Happy Bunch, okay? Those are cultivated for admiring – strictly not for eating.
