Roses and Eating Them
Do you love roses? I do. Old style roses that look like cabbages, 5-petal wild-style roses, exhibition tea roses, a-bunch-on-a-stem floribundas, I like them all. They make my yard beautiful, grow easily, and roses look great in the house.
But, other than looking at them and growing them, I don't do much with them. Take a look for an interesting article along with some really great ideas about roses in cooking at Saveur Magazine, “Why—And How—You Should Incorporate Roses In Your Diet” : https://www.saveur.com/cooking-with-roses?CMPID=ene081618
How about some Rose Butter? Or maybe some fragrant rose honey—what a treat that would be in some hot tea on a cold winter's morning!
