Rose petals Napoleon





A few times we contemplate that many of the flowers we use are edible and delicious. For a very long time flowers have been used as ingredient for food, from the Romans to Orient but especially in Indian and Chinese cuisine.

Do you think you could use Rosewater instead of Rose Essence?

Beautiful photographs Sylvia. A joy to look at! I wish we could buy boxes of edible roses in Holland. I would love to try out your recipe.

Perhaps I can use some of the roses in my garden too. I will check it out!

Have a lovely day!
