What is Rose Petals?
Rose petals come from the rose flower. The rose is fragrant, with a thorny stem and silky soft petals that are clustered in a circle of layers. Each petal is a wide oblong and usually no greater than two inches in width or length. Rose petals used in food preparation are usually red and sometimes pink, though rose petals come in all shades of white, yellow, orange, pink and red. The petal has a heady floral and gently sweet taste and aroma; it is used to decorate food items and can be found in drinks and desserts.
