Rose 🌹 Petal Sugar

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the October 13th, 2021

Roses are in full bloom – perfect time to make Rose Petal Sugar.

This deliciously fragrant sugar can be sprinkled on pancakes and desserts, used in icing, baking and infusions, added to smoothies or cocktails, plus much more.


  • Don’t use roses from a florist – they will have been sprayed. Only use ones that you know have been grown organically.
  • The more scented the rose the better the sugar.
  • Store it in an airtight container in the freezer.
  • The amounts below are a guide – you can adjust it to your taste.
  • Don’t wash the petals but rather put them in a colander and shake gently to remove any bugs.
  • Recipe

    200g caster sugar

    1 cup rose petals, tightly packed.

    Blitz in a blender until smooth. Decant into an airtight bottle.
