There is about one week in late spring when the Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) blooms and we gather the flowers. The smell is sweet like a perfume, and lends itself nicely to sweet foods like fritters, syrups, and pancakes. The taste of the raw flowers is sweet like fresh peas. The blossoms attract lots of bees and ants.
