Baking with Rose

ScarletFox ScarletFox
My job is having a rose themed party, and I was wondering if anyone has had experience using rose as an ingredient or know any recipes for things that could include rose in it.

That is so cool!! I have never made anything with roses. I have made candied violets and we did something with some kind of orchids before. Good luck and let us know what you have found and tried!

Perhaps tea with rose hips? It's not baking but it's still rose-themed food.

I actually found a recipe for some cookies I am planning on making sometime soon. link

Roses are great for cooking and baking! In middle-eastern cooking, rosewater is used in a lot of recipes. It has a pretty strong floral smell and taste, so use it sparingly if you're unsure. Rose petals are edible and, near where they connect to the flower, a bit sweet. You can dip them in simple syrup for a pretty, edible garnish on a cupcake! You can also dry and powder the petals, which adds little to the flavor of a plate, but looks like mineral dust, which can be very pretty if used properly.

Hope this helps!

To make your own rosewater, buy a couple dozen roses on the cheap, remove all the petals to a large glass bowl and steep them in water you boiled and cooled for a minute... About 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Steep until the water is completely cooled, you can't oversteep rose petals, then discard the used petals (they won't be very pretty anymore, sorta water-logged) and bottle the rosewater in a blue bottle to protect the essential oils you just extracted from the petals, from the damage the sun can cause.

Or you could just buy a bottle!

The only time I've ever used rose was in making Turkish Delight! (Tasty, jelly-like candy that is dusted in icing sugar.)
