Rose water has been a popular flavoring for centuries in the cuisines of the Middle East, India and China. It’s a distillation of rose petals that has the intense perfumy flavor and fragrance of its source. Of similar taste, is rose syrup, which is made from rose water, but with the addition of sugar. Drizzle rosewater and rose syrup on items like yogurt, ice cream, waffles or oatmeal, or use them to add a unique flowery hint to beverages.
