‘Edible Chrysanthemum’ is totally different ‘Chrysanthemum’ and it is a vegetable in in the daisy family. Its strong and distinguish flavour is what you love or hate. I hated it when I was a child, but now I live it. If you love it, you will enjoy this rice dish. It’s very simple yet delicate and full of this vegetable’s flavour.
