Rose water is a Mediterranean flavoring that goes well in sweet or savory dishes. Try a few drops in rice dishes or salads. You can also use it to flavor cream fillings, cookie dough and beverages.
Rose water is a subtle Mediterranean flavoring, with a floral flavor and aroma. It is made from the steam distilled directly from rose petals and is very powerful so a little goes a long way.
Rose water can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Rice pilafs and salad dressings both take on a new depth of flavor if you add a few drops. For sweet preparations, a drop of rose water is a nice touch in baklava filling, pastry cream, butter cream or cookie dough. Try adding a few drops to a small container of sugar. Shake it up and let the flavor seep into the sugar for a few days. When the sugar is done, you will have a beautiful product to use in your tea or as a finishing sugar on baked goods.
Add a drop to pre packaged sweets for an extra zip of homemade flavor. Yogurts, iced teas and lemonades and boxed cake mixes will all be unrecognizable afterwards.
