  1. So excited to find your website. Do you have any source, either in the DC area or online, for dried marigold? Thanks!

    • Unfortunately I have not been able to find this outside of Georgia. There are plenty of places to get dried calendula (pot marigold) online, which is the preferred type among most cultures that use marigold in cooking. Georgians, however, use the ground petals of French marigold (Tagetes), which I can only find as seed. There are a few different varieties of tagetes. Darra Goldstein’s book The Georgian Feast references Tagetes patula, while other sources say that’s the least pleasant type of marigold to eat. I’ve seen dried calendula petals at Bazaar Spices in Union Market here in DC–I plan to grind them in a coffee grinder and compare the taste with marigold I’ve purchased in Georgia.
