I was reading a book on Roses and I stumbled across a line about, perhaps at one time, rose petal sandwiches were a delicacy in England. I am guessing rose petals are high in Vitamin C, and I'll occasionally pluck out a rose petal and eat it. But in a sandwich? No elaboration about whether or not you eat the sandwich with butter or mayo.

I remember at about 8 years old my sister and I used to try to make perfume by stealing the neighbor's roses and grinding up the petal to add to water. It never worked, smelled like rotten plants.

Should have tried the sandwiches.

I'd need alot of petals to make a hearty sandwich. I have heard of rosewater in some cooking, but never the petals.

I know of rose petals jam. That's one of the "pączki" filling in Poland. But I never ate them raw, although there are many edible flowers.

I do love many edible flowers, one of my favorite goat cheeses, includes edible flowers, they put them on the top, as decoration,so it looks so pretty too. I also love lavender. If any of our transplanted roses bloom this year, I shall have a nibble

Yeah... We should not only smell the roses, but eat them too...
(perfect food for fragrant kisses!)

People do eat flowers. We used to eat zucchini flowers dipped in a batter and fried.
