I had a lovely rose jelly dessert made from fragrant rosebuds and petals in China last summer. Chinese rose jelly is about the most beautiful and elegant thing I’ve ever seen for a lovely afternoon tea party. Perhaps only rose can deliver such beautiful scent and delicate flavor. I missed the flavor so much that I decided to make rose jelly by myself. I used rosebuds and petals I bought. Turned out this perfect, very rosy and pleasant afternoon tea dessert.
The rose scent is just right – not too weak, not overpowering. It smells and tastes like a fresh bouquet of roses. I hope you’ll enjoy!… View Post
