My Top 5 Flowers
Rose petals contain 95 % water and therefore, they are low in calories. However, they do contain some vitamin C and fibers. Some use roses to add a perfumed and tender texture to salads or even chocolate! My grandma prefers using sweet rose petals in herbal teas and to make us some rose water syrup and rose petals jam.
It is crucial to keep in mind that NOT all flowers are edible, and therefore, it is necessary to consult a reference book or a qualified botanical professional. Moreover, commercial flowers or flowers on the streets are best not eaten – they would be swimming in pesticides and pollutants, so it’s best to either grow your own or buy organically grown flowers.
