Rose Water – A Unique Flavour in Raw Food Recipes

Rose Water
Are you getting bored of using the same spices and flavors in your raw food recipes? Want some new ideas on how to flavor your raw food dishes with a unique twist? Here’s a new one that I’ve been playing with in the kitchen – rose water. You can often buy rose hydrosol at specialty spice shops. Rose water adds a distinct and unique underlying floral touch thats hard to find with any other ingredient. I started experimenting by adding it to different recipes like my raw carrot manna bread and smoothies, even in desserts like this ginger rose chocolate mousse recipe, where I used a splash of rose water to create a unique chocolate floral taste. I’m looking forward to incorporating it into some of my other dishes like puddings, scones and pastries.

After coming across this wonderful well kept secret, I found out that rose water is  is made from the distillation of rose petals and is a by-product of the production of rose oil. Rose water is used heavily in Iranian cuisine, sparking some new ideas and inspiring me to branch off from the more frequently used ethnic flavours like Mexican, Thai and Italian.

I started reading more about the health benefits of rose water and came to realize it really doesn’t get the attention that it deserves. Rose water has numerous health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, high in vitamin A and vitamin C and also has anti-inflammatory qualities. You can also use it topically to hydrate and rejuvenate your skin and your hair.

It’s also very affordable. I was in Boulder Colorado a couple of months ago and came across this super cute little spice shop called Savoury Spice Shop that sells food grade rose water for a very reasonable price. I know they also ship, so you can give them a call or order from them online.

Let me know if you find some new and interesting uses for rose water in your raw food dishes that you would like to share!

Have a wonderful day everyone, keep shinning bright,

Aloha
