With over a hundred species to choose from scented varieties carry the best flavour. If it smells nice it will taste nice too. Petals have a sweet essence reminiscent of strawberry and sharp apple. Add raw to salads, cocktails or crystallise for cake decorations. Make jams and syrups from petals as well as hips. Be sure to remove the bitter white heel from the petal base.
