Geraniums


The sweet-scented many-flavored leaves of geraniums are used in pound cake, jellies and compotes, or merely as floaters in finger bowls.

Use a lime-scented leaf in custard or an apple-flavored one in baked apples.

For lime flavor try Pelargonium nervosum; for apple, P. odoratissimum; for mint, P. tomentosum; for rose, P. graveloens.

These geraniums are tender but grow well in posts under ordinary household conditions.
