Today, I want to address if you are able to eat/drink/use them in your food. Introducing “Culinary Questions with Kimberly”!
Watch this video below to find out if you are able to, or not…
Basically, it all depends upon one answer…whether the roses you are ingesting were organically grown, or non-organically grown.
If they were not propagated organically, then they may contain insecticides, pesticides and other chemicals that are simply not good for you, and could possibly even be carcinogenic.
If they are organically grown, then, by all means, go ahead and use the petals in salads, use them as food decoration, or even steep the petals for a great tea! There are many uses for roses and rose products as long as they are food grade.
You are able to purchase food grade rosewater at your health food store, or in the ethnic aisle at your grocer.
Here is my favorite rose recipe below!
