roses

Food & Drink - - FOOD ENTERTAINI­NG -

A fra­grant sum­mer rose is sweet and lightly fruity with hints of ap­ple and strawberry. Rose pe­tals have been used to make rose­wa­ter and rose syrups since an­cient times and was the flavour­ing of choice for desserts un­til the 1800s, when vanilla sur­passed it.

The pop­u­lar­ity of Mid­dle East­ern cui­sine is rein­tro­duc­ing us to the al­lur­ing flavour of the rose, but it’s easy to overdo it. A homemade rose syrup gives you a light nat­u­ral flavour that feels true to the fra­grance of your gar­den; add it to cock­tails, toss with fresh fruit, add to jams and jellies or use it to flavour creamy desserts and gar­nish with the pe­tals.
