Thread: Anyone ever cooked with rose petals.

    Default Anyone ever cooked with rose petals.

    Last night on Chopped, red roses were one of the ingredients in the
    main course.
    The best thing that was done with them was to make a rose salt.

    I've only used rose petals in making desserts, never a main course.

    Anyone else ever used them??

    I can't help you there but I'm not sure if I thanked you for posting
    the egg and green chili casserole link and I lost your post.

    It looks really good.

    Thank you!

    I have a recipe for quails with a rose sauce, but I've never made it.
    I have made rose petal jelly, though, and that was quite tasty.

    I have made a simple syrup for use in making rose ice cream but the real
    issue is getting organic, certified edible roses. They are rare and
    expensive.

    However there are instructions for various uses of roses in cooking, in
    Escofiers autobiography, he recounts a "Red Dinner" he created for some
    gamblers that won a lot of money at Monte Carlo which involved the use
    of roses as an ingredient in several of the dishes, some for colouring
    some for flavour. Iirc there was a pheasant dressed in rose petals
    involved

    I have often wondered if various different types of roses would produce
    different flavours or variations on a basic rose flavour.

    Not if you grow your own! :-)
    Many people have rose bushes. I have two climbing blazes and get a
    small fortune in rose petals from them every spring.

    The one out in the end of the driveway right now has about a dozen rose
    hips ripening on it right now too.

    I'm considering trying to sprout rosebushes from seeds.

    Likely as not!
    If roses did not require so much water, I'd have more of them. The
    blazes do fine with minimal hand watering.

    I used to know a rose aficionado who was also a strict vegan and more
    than a bit neurotic about "chemicals" or additives in his food or roses
    (which he did not eat) and who was happy to help, me with my experiment
    in making rose ice cream. But since his demise i have not found another
    source for the roses and recently saw a small jar of a rose paste in a
    Halal market, but didn't have my glasses with me and couldn't read the
    ingredients list

    That's true. I use rosewater in Arabic desserts.

    Unless it's a wild rose variety you will not be successful growing
    from seed. Nearly all modern roses are grafted onto sturdy root
    stock. They may also be a hybrid.

    With the right knowledge you could probably be successful grafting
    onto new root stock.

    Where did you get the rose petals at an affordable price? I don't
    have a rose garden and you don't know what chemicals have been sprayed
    on commercial roses.

    I would think so. If they smell different, they should taste
    different too.

    There is so little volume in them theyre best used for decoration only
    imho. Remove the base of the petal for best flavour. If you dont have
    roses, jsut knock on peoples doors and ask.

    Flowers can be crystalized... crystalized rose petals are commonly
    used for garnish and they are very edible... roses are botanically in
    the same family as the apple.

    brand new bottle of rosewater...
