Rose Petals Organic Dried Edible Flowers

Steenbergs organic pink rose petals are perfect for a variety of culinary uses including rose petal jam and the Moroccan dish Ras al hanout or just sprinkle them on salads or in rice for the added flavour, perfume and pleasure of using them. Of course, you can always use Steenbergs organic rose petals for alternatives to cooking - they are a real pleasure just to look at and smell the heady fragrance. You could even use the organic rose petals to decorate cupcakes - the list is endless. 


Rose buds are generally picked from the damask rose, Rosa damascena, which is the type used for making rose oil and rose water as well due to its heady rose aroma. Roses are hardy deciduous shrubs, which have arching prickly stems. Damask rose plants grow to 2 metres high (7ft) and produce clusters of semi-double fragrant pink flowers. Rosebuds and rose petals are picked in early summer in the morning when they have fullest aroma and flavour and then are either dried or use to make rose oil or rose water. There is very little volatile oil (less than 1%) in rose petals so the aroma and flavour is truly subtle.  The flavour of rose petals are floral and perfumed, and altogether very pleasing.  For more on the damask rose, try Ingredientia and Wikipedia.


Roses and rose water are seldom used in European cooking, although they were very popular in previous centuries. Rose remains, however, a popular ingredient in Arabic cooking and through into India, being known in the UK for its use in flavouring Turkish delight or in ras al hanut, the trendy North African spice mix. In India, ground rose buds are used to marinade kormas or in desserts like rose flavoured kheer. In Tunisia, rose petals are used to flavour roast meats or in couscous recipes and for flavouring meatballs. We find that rose petals work really well with fruits like apricots or carrots and in trice or desserts. Good examples are Rose Water Ice Cream, Korma Narendra Shahi, Royal Lamb Korma, Tunisian Meatballs In Tomato Sauce or Rose Kheer. Or why not just add rose petals to hot water and brew to give a calming, floral and sensuous tisane to act as a digestif. Let us know your favourite use of them.


Steenbergs organic rose petals are part of Steenbergs extensive range of dried grocery items, including a massive range of spices, herbs, salts, peppercorns, flowers, spice and herb blends, extracts and flavours, stuffings and teas. At Steenbergs, we source, blend and pack these ingredients ourselves at our factory in Ripon, North Yorkshire, with love, care and attention.
