Rose petals have long been used as an ingredient in tonics and salves. Rose petals have been mixed into tea and other drinks to soothe aching bellies. Rose has been shown to provide analgesic effects, and if that wasn't enough, roses also contain anti-inflammatory properties, providing some level of relief against conditions such as arthritis.
Not only have they been shown to provide help for discomfort, studies have also shown rose petals to have integral health benefits as well. Roses contain antioxidants, which reduce free radicals and promote health at the cellular level. Rose petals also have antimicrobial properties, to help ward off harmful bacteria and other microorganisms. It can also be argued that the fragrance of rose essence offers a calming effect, reducing stress and improving overall emotional wellbeing.
We don't typically think of roses as being an ingredient for food or drink, but every variety of rose is — in fact — perfectly edible. Ancient Romans were the first in recorded history to employ this flower into their meals and beverages, and it's carried through into many cultures — but somehow lost favor among the Anglo-American population at large. Rose petals can be used as a garnish, to enhance the flavor of cakes and breads, made into a jam or syrup, or added to tea leaves for brewing.
There are around 200 species of rose, and each variety carries its own flavor. As a general rule, roses taste the same as they smell — though scentless roses each have their own unique flavor. A rose's taste can vary from sweet and fragrant to sour and bitter, and varieties can be mixed to create distinct one-of-a-kind flavors. Some nurseries breed certain species of rose for the purposes of adding to food and drink. A rose petal is edible straight from the flower — but be careful to wash it thoroughly, to get rid of any pesticides or other chemicals that may be on the flower.
Though roses are the main topic of this Q&A — and we've established that roses are not only edible, but offer a wide variety of flavor profiles — you might be curious if there are any other flowers out there, like the rose, that people use in food and drink. There indeed are a number of floral ingredients used to flavor food, and many also have the side benefit of providing health benefits and medicinal value.
The list of flowers suitable for eating is too numerous for a single FAQ answer, but we'd like to provide you with some of the more popular flowers that chefs and gourmets like to use in their dishes.
