Edible roses, a feast for the eye and your taste buds!
It’s time to look at roses from a whole new perspective! Many people know roses for the beauty of their flowers. They are beautiful in a vase or in the garden. At the same time, roses have been cultivated for thousands of years for their nutritious, medicinal and cosmetic properties. Rose hips are used to make jams, while petals are used for teas, salads, various confectionery, vinegar, sauces, and spices. Chemical analyzes have even shown that certain rose varieties have a higher nutritional value than some common fruits and vegetables. They are full of substances beneficial to human health such as vitamin C, antioxidants, sugars, proteins, lipids, tannins, pectins, amino acids and essential oils.
