Although all parts of a daylily blossom are edible, its a good idea to remove the stamens and pistils to prevent any allergic reaction to the pollen.

1 cucumber
6 to 8 daylilies
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup pesto

Makes 24 to 30 appetizers

Slice the cucumber into rounds and place them on a serving platter. Rinse the daylilies and gently snap the petals from the stem. Place a petal on top of each cucumber slice.

To make the dip, combine the sour cream with the pesto; this can be done in advance. Place about a teaspoon of the dip on each daylily petal. Serve immediately or refrigerate for a short period of time before serving.
