Alternative uses for Roses!

Post by SueH on 2nd June 2014, 16:24

Just wondered what other uses for roses rather than blooms, other forum members have.  For example, I've made rose petal wine.      What have you done?!

When I actually have some roses in my garden, I'm hoping to try rose petal jam and rose hip jelly. I hope I get enough hips.

LOL!!  OMG..... what have I started!!  Bet you don't make/do all those things you've listed David!

John, yes somewhere I have the recipe.  Have no idea of the alcofrolic content!  Don't think we really minded then!  It was rather good, according to friends.  Well, they used to go home smiling!! Will look it out for you if you're interested.

Zoe, just ignore these two!  Rose petal jam and rose hip jelly are just gorgeous.  We will have to have a market stall and
Roseman can sell "his" Pot Purri" and perfumes along with out wines jams and jellies!! LOL

Oh suuuuuuure, David led you astray! You're fooling no-one, Neptune. Haha!

Anyway, looks like my rough and rugged lady friends who will be attending my garden party (Sarah van Fleet and Rosarie de l'Hay) don't even have any hips, so you boys are out of luck!

Shame, that. I would have liked to have seen a nice set of hips on these exotic beauties.

Hahahaha, Neptune, you are a dog!

I think we will need to change our name to "Dirty Talk Australia" in the very near future if this carries on.

PS. Do you grow a lot of antiques, Neptune?
