Rose Petal Honey

Rose Petal Honey | Gardening Inspiration and Information | Scoop.it

"On my last day in India, I had my first taste of rose petal honey, swirled into the yogurt I ate for breakfast as I sat on a balcony watching the Taj Mahal shimmer through a haze of humidity. Back home, I couldn't forget the taste—sensual, sublime, exotic, and familiar all at once, like India."

 

Virtually all roses are safe to eat; just make sure they're organically grown.  Follow the photo-link to find the recipe.
