Best Marigold

I live in Durban, where marigolds grow wild. Recently I’ve seen bunches of them for sale at Food Lovers Market. I assume they are for eating as they are sold with the vegetables not the flowers. What can I cook with them?

I haven’t heard of recipes for cooking marigolds. Have you seen Monsoon Wedding where the wedding planner eat marigolds all the time while hanging garlands? You plant the marigolds in between the vegetable. Apparently the strong smell drives the way the insects and so protects your harvest.
