Anyway, talking of roses and smells - here is something for you to try out as a dressing on your salad -
Ingredients: 350g/12oz rose petals (pick ones that have a strong perfume)
300ml/half a pint white wine vinegar
1. Lightly rinse and dry the petals ensuring there are no insects or bugs (I can help out here)
2. Place in a sterilised 300ml/half pint glass jar with a screw lid. Do not pack down too firmly.
3.Cover with white wine vinegar and leave in a sunny place for at least one month before using.
Enjoy! Love Sylvia x
