You might guess from my screen name that I am fond of rose food.

•Lemonade, with mint garnish
•Icing/frosting where pink or red is not wanted
•Cosmetic uses—blend with an oil or soap base
(too subtle for making liqueur, IMO)
•in making baklava
•spray over potpourri
•sprinkle on bed linens

SF Rose syrup:
•Add to fizzy water for an Italian soda
•Lemonade, with mint garnish, as at least a partial sweetener
•Icing/frosting If the syrup is red/pink, it will stain pale frosting
•sweeten black tea. It’s nice in milk, too.

Rose petals:
•For potpourri
•Mix with tea leaves. There is a tea called rose pouchong or souchong. These terms indicate how far down the stalk the leaves are placed.
•Crush to powder for adding to icing/frosting
•Make a floral tisane—goes well with dried orange blossom or jasmine. All three is heavenly.
