Sweet Clover/Melilot (Melilotus spp.) The aroma of sweet clover, yellow (as pictured above) or white, is a delicious mix of bitter almonds, vanilla and hay. While the pre-flowering top (pictured below) are best for flavoring, the flowers can also be used to flavor or as a garnish.
Infuse into cream for a sweet and complex vanilla-like ice cream, or to whip it into whipped cream. Infuse it into butter to flavor pasties or infuse into water or vodka to enhance a standard libation.
