I ate a pansy. [Insert gay innuendo here.]
I had no idea pansies were edible and I relished the primal appeal of just reaching over to a plant, grabbing a piece of it and tossing it in my mouth.
For their delicate appearance, pansies are surprisingly firm and chewy, with a gritty dirt-like texture and a bitter leaf-like flavor, like kale.
Unlike most pansies I know, who are just plain bitchy.
