Beyond their beauty and fragrance, our Rose Petals have many culinary uses, lending their signature aroma and light, tart-sweet flavor to teas, syrups, oils, sauces, baked goods, cocktails, and more.
Rose Petals have been utilized as an herb in cooking for thousands of years, contributing their incomparable fragrance and light, tart-sweet flavor to products including rose water, rose syrup, rose oil and rose sugar, which, in turn, are used to make candies, jams, beverages, ice creams, baked goods, sauces and more. Rose Petals are frequently used as a last-minute garnish for both savory and sweet dishes, and are most commonly included in pastries, cakes and sweets containing nuts and dried fruits.
Most species of roses are thought to have originated in Northern Persia, although some are native to Europe, North America and Northern Africa. Unsurprisingly, given their origins, Rose Petals are mostly used in European, Middle Eastern and North African cuisines. Our Rose Petals are cultivated in the fertile fields of India.
