Arugula blossoms are available starting in late spring through the summer months.
A member of the mustard or Brassicaceae family arugula blossoms are the flower of the annual edible plant, arugula. Also known as salad rocket, roquette and rucola, both the leaves and flowers of arugula are edible and most commonly used today in salads. The seeds of the arugula blossom can be pressed to produce an oil known as taramira that is used mainly for medical and cosmetic purposes.
The arugula blossom consists of four petals arranged in a cross shape attached to a central green core. Its delicate cream to yellow colored petals are striped with faint purple and green veins. Arugula blossoms offer a peppery flavor and spice with nutty undertones. The piquant flavor of the flowers mellows when cooked.
Arugula blossoms are perfect for use in raw preparations. Add to green and grain salads or float atop chilled cream based or clear soups. Incorporate arugula blossoms and fresh herbs into butter, sour cream or soft cheeses to make an attractive spread for bread and crackers. Add to dough for savory breads such as focaccia, tortillas and parathas. Use as an edible garnish on frittatas, quiche and scallops or add to brine when making pickled vegetables.
The Romans believed arugula and its blossoms had aphrodisiac properties, as result of this the Roman Catholic Church forbade the growth of it in monastery gardens.
Arugula dates back to the time of the Romans, it is mentioned in both the Bible and Talmud and touted for its medicinal attributes in the writings of the poets Ovid and Martial and the physicians Galen and Dioscorides. Native to the Mediterranean, arugula blossoms and leaves have long been a popular ingredient in the cuisines of Italy, Morocco, Portugal and Turkey. Arugula’s popularity as a culinary ingredient in the United States has been growing since the early 2000’s.
