I’m not entirely sure who wakes up in the morning and thinks to themselves, “I wish I had rose tinted sugar!” But if that’s you, then you’re in the right place. Our rose bushes only had a few roses left, so I decided to put them to good use. It doesn’t get easier than this if you want to fancy up your sugar. It takes all of a blender, one cup of sugar and one cup of rose petals. Pulse until combined, and remove any large petals left over, then store the sugar in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Done. Call it a day.
Make sure to use roses from your garden. Don’t use roses from a florist, they will have likely been treated with something to help lengthen their lifespan. And make sure the rose petals are dry before you throw them in the blender with the sugar. Other than that, go nuts, blend all your roses if you like! I plan on making some blackberry custard filled donuts with rose sugar, so stay tuned for that!
