Lightly rosy and perfect over vanilla ice cream.

My sister grew some beautiful edible tea roses that smell so fragrant and looked so gorgeous as she gave them to me in a vase. I admired them just until they were about to turn and thought, maybe I would like to try making a recipe out of them. I’ve never cooked rose petals before, so here it is, rose petal syrup. It’s so delicate, with hints of rose and pairs so well with vanilla ice cream.



  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup edible rose petals


  1. Heat water and sugar to a boil on med-high heat, stirring constantly and continue to boil for about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in rose petals and continue to boil mixture for another 2 minutes until slightly thickened.
  3. Removed from heat and drizzle over ice cream, pastries, or any dessert of choice.

Here are some photos I took of the flowers, I’m thinking of painting a still life of the vase and creamer pour arrangement, they’re just so beautiful.
