Rose Petal Recipes

Recipes to have you eating your roses!

rose petal recipes tea pot and rose

These rose petal recipes, (or recipes using rose petals), can be made using roses from your garden.

But only use the petals:

~If you garden Organically!~

Note: Make sure there is NO pesticide spray on any petals you use! Never use petals from roses that come from the florist, nursery, or any place other than Your Own garden!

It is best to gather the flowers in the morning, from flowers that are just about opening, to have the most amount of perfume oil still in the petals.

Important Be sure to cut off the white base on each clump of petals, this part is very bitter.(some disagree, and feel this is not necessary) Taste them, to decide for yourself, if you feel it worth the trouble.

Enjoy these rose petal recipes!

You should Not use aluminum pans in your recipes as it breaks down vitamin C, and changes the color and flavor of your petals.

Stainless steel or glass pans are highly recommended.
