Thanks to the bounty of my friend Jenn's garden, I have some organic, voluptuous roses to make some rose petal whipped cream. You'll see this on top of a dessert tonight. Recipe adapted from Cooking with Flowers: Sweet and Savory Recipes with Rose Petals, Lilacs, Lavender, and Other Edible Flowers by Miche Bacher of Mali B Sweets.
2 handfuls of organic rose petals
splash of pure vanilla extract
1/4 C organic powdered sugar
Place the powdered sugar in a large bowl. Pour in the whipping cream and whisk until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract. Gently submerge the rose petals in the cream mixture. Let infuse for at least 30 minutes. The longer it steeps, the stronger the rose flavor.
Stay tuned for my rose-scented sweet creation...
