Patricia Telesco's Kitchen Witch's Cookbook. It came out great. It was by no means an over powering scent.
I cooked it down on my stove at a simmer according to instructions. The petals once filtered out will now go into the compost.
Now many of you are probably wondering what the heck I'm going to do with rose water, well I'll tell you.
Rose water can be used in cooking, stop and see this new blogger's site, Why I'll Never Again Stop To Smell Roses to find out what she created with rose water, I find it an absolutely gorgeous creation.
Roses can be used in skin care. See these articles: Beauty Secrets and Things You Can Do With Rose Water.
So now I have to decide if I want to cook with it or use it on my skin. I have really dry skin so I'm going to probably opt to use it for a cosmetic purpose though Rachel's Cake does look divine.
Because I also practice Wicca there are numerous things that I can also use my rose water for with the craft. Maybe I'll use it for cooking, craft, and beauty.
