Rose petal jam is a tasty delicacy, but you need to eat your jar up quickly or the roses will lose their potency. There are so many ways you can enjoy this treat--from topping your scones to swirling in ice cream or sweetening tea. Enjoy your jam, share with friends and explore your options.
As a Spread
You can eat rose petal jam as you would any other jam. Spread it on a morning scone, top your favorite pancakes or add a thin layer on a crisp piece of toast. Rose petal jam is also delicious on an English muffin or a freshly toasted bagel.
You can use rose petal jam to enhance your baked goods as well. Swirl the jam into coffee cake for a fruity touch. Or use the jam in the center of thumbprint cookies for a tasty dessert. You can even spread a thin layer of jam in a pie shell and top with streusel crumbs.
Use the natural sweetness of rose petal jam to sweeten your drinks. Stir a spoonful into a glass of tea or add a dollop to your smoothie. Pair it with different fruit flavors to find ideal combinations.
Mousse or Ice Cream
You can even use rose petal jam to create unique dishes like rose petal ice cream or mousse. Swirl a few spoons of the jam into a pint of vanilla ice cream for an attractive, decadent dish. You can fold the jam into freshly whipped cream for a mousse-like treat.
