Borage is a culinary herb mostly popular in Central Europe. Its light cucumber fragrance is usually suitable for salads prepared from raw vegetables. Sometimes borage is used to make pureed soups.

Borage is a favorite herb for flavoring summer drinks. The blue and occasionally pink delicate flowers are edible. The leaves can be eaten in salads and the flowers added as decoration.

The blooms can also be candied. Watch out for the thorny like leaves. Tender leaves and star-shaped flowers have a very mild cucumber flavor. The plant grows wild in Central and Eastern Europe.

Boiling, frying and simmering will quickly destroy most of its characteristic fragrance. Young flowers of borage can be pink and become blue only in the course of their individual flowering period.
