    Rose Water

    Rose water is an ingredient commonly used in Turkish Delight... it gives it its distinctive flavour. It is also used in Indian smoothies called Lassi. I adore it!

    Do you use it? What in? What else do you know about this divine ingredient?



    I've taken a photo of the bottle I bought last weekend but due to BB server issues it times out before it loads... but i'll add a link when I have it in my gallery.

    I think you can add it to rice puddings and ****tails. Not sure what else you'd use it in though. I'm not really a fan.

    I forgot to add that I intend on popping some into my MiEssence Rose Hydrating Mist when it runs out... it will tide me by until I can afford to buy it again... I suspect I won't be able to tell the difference. Smells soooo divine!

    Tinkerbell: yep, I'm going to Google recipes soon.... just thought I would find out how other people have used it successfully... I imagine it would "go" with creamy coconut type puddings.

    Lulu: ooooooh ice cream! of course!!! That sounds perfect! I don't have a maker... but I have been able to make it from scratch by just doing it manually.

    I reckon you could use it in place of vanilla in cakes etc as well?

    If you make torrone/nougat at all, add rosewater to the mix and sub the almonds with pistachio -

    Also good in any white choc based recipes, like cakes and slices.

    Apart from things that have already been mentioned above, (rose ice-cream is particularly wonderful, rose and coconut is stupendous, rose and watermelon sorbet is just special), I use a little in the poaching liquid whenever I poach pears, and if I serve double cream with them I add a little rosewater to the cream.
