ORI­GINS AND USES

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

Rose wa­ter may have been in­tro­duced to Bri­tain by the Ro­mans or much later by Cru­saders re­turn­ing from the Mid­dle East. It was used to flavour food be­fore vanilla be­came pop­u­lar in cook­ery in the 19th cen­tury. In Bri­tain, it was once used as a flavour­ing in York­shire curd tarts and fea­tured in recipes for both sweet and savoury dishes from the El­iz­a­bethan pe­riod through to the 1950s, when it seemed to fall out of favour. How­ever, it has re­cently seen some­thing of a re­vival as a culi­nary in­gre­di­ent.
