rose-scented geranium (note that I'm talking about the bedding plants...these are different) but it's not yet big enough to produce enough flowers. Instead, I shoved a few leaves in some sugar to infuse. The result? Delicious, mildly rose-scented sugar.
After a hot day of strawberry picking, I threw a handful of fresh berries, a teaspoon of the rose-sugar, a tiny bit of water and a few ice cubes all together in a blender. The result is a refreshing way to use a lot of berries! Adding a splash of rose water (available in the middle eastern aisle of most grocery stores) just intensified the rose flavor.
All fortified now, I went on to make 2 batches of strawberry-balsamic jam!
