Here in the states we don’t usually think of using flowers in our cooking, but in other parts of the world many different flowers are regularly used to flavor dishes. The flavor of rose is very much like its scent and although sweet, they are used as a flavoring to both sweet and savory dishes.

As a treatment for lead poisoning from bullet wounds, Napoleon’s army would use rose petals boiled in white wine.

Throughout the Arab world rose petals are in savory meals including stews, rice, roasts, couscous and fish. In India they are used in marinades, kormas and in Kheer (rice pudding). Rose petals can also be used to infuse syrups and sugars for making desserts and drinks.

Our rosebuds and petals come to us from Pakistan.

"I have been ordering from the Franklin location for a while now and the quality of the products is outstanding. I especially appreciate their unique combinations not found elsewhere, such as the Georgia Peach Spice. Products are always packaged well, delivered quickly, and the customer service is the best. Everyone is very knowledgeable and they have made some excellent suggestions in regard to quantities to order, blends, etc. Thank you for helping to elevate my cooking, baking and grilling!"
