Dried marigolds have orange petals, with a delicate, peppery flavor.
They often make a bright and flavorsome garnish on many different culinary dishes such as canapes or cakes or other dishes such as œufs à la neige or semifreddo.
They often give off color and aromas when infused with liquids
They are not good for guinea pigs to eat due to their peppery flavor. If they were to nibble a little they should be fine, but they are not a food to be purposely fed to a guinea pig.
