    We can use rose petals to add its great flavor to various teas and infusions but also as a sweetener instead of sugar or honey, or use it by itself to make a very unique infusion that can be drunk either hot or cold. We can also make liqueurs or disserts or use it in various sauces or stewed meats, vegetables and soups; one should be careful with it though and use a small amount so that our dish doesn’t end up as too sweet.
