Eating Roses

According to the BBC,the flowers of vegetables and herbs are generally safe to eat.
Most roses are edible but as with all flowers you should wash them well and avoid any that have been sprayed with chemical pesticides. If in doubt, don't eat them.

To making sugared roses, dissolve one quarter of a tablespoon of gum arabic in one tablespoon of water or rosewater. Brush this over fresh rose petals, then sprinkle with caster sugar and leave to dry on non-stick baking parchment. Use these to decorate cakes or desserts.

You can eat almost any fragrant rose as long as it hasn’t been sprayed with chemical pesticides. Don’t eat the white bits at the base of the petals because these are bitter.

Flower products such as rose syrups, liqueurs and even dried petals are accessible online for specialist suppliers or look in delicatessens and Middle Eastern food stores.

Who am I?

My name is Anna.
I am a HUGE lover of Chocolate.
I eat it, I research it, and I live by it.

By day I am a dietician, ironically as it may seem.
By night, I am obsessed with the various aspects related to chocolate.

A Day Without Chocolate is like a day without Sunshine.
