Our Rose Honey Infusion is essential for making our Sweetheart Martini, but its sweet and soothing flavor can be used in various other dishes. Roses have been used for centuries for their beautiful appearance and fragrant, edible petals. Conventionally grown greenhouse flowers often lack the flavors and aromas typical of traditionally grown plants. When using roses to make an infusion, it’s essential to use either organic or homegrown roses to avoid consuming unwanted pesticides.
This Infusion makes an excellent gift for the tea drinkers or foodies in your life.
Making this infusion at home is simple—place organic rose petals in a sanitized glass jar, cover them with honey, and steep them for a few days. Depending on your desired level of sweetness and aroma, you can strain out the petals after the desired amount of time or leave them in for added texture and flavor. You can also get creative by adding other aromatic herbs or dried lavender to enhance the flavor profile. Many recipes benefit from this infusion—try adding it to ice cream or other desserts to add depth and complexity to a dish.

Additionally, ensure that all utensils are appropriately cleaned before preparation, and store your infusion correctly, as bacteria can quickly develop if left at room temperature for too long.
