These edible cherry blossoms are pickled and dried in salt.  They are preserved as a way to commemorate the welcoming of the spring season.  In Japan, salted cherry blossoms are used to make a tea called sakuracha (桜茶) and served during celebrations such as wedding ceremonies.

Because these pickled flowers are lightly salty and contain a beautiful floral scent, they are also used for sweet and savory dishes.  It can add a sweet pink hue to colour your dishes or desserts.
