This recipe started as something else entirely and then a substitute here and a substitute there and suddenly it was a completely new recipe. I thought it was unique, but I found out it is quite similar to Indian Rose Milk Pudding. The pudding has more milk and thus a creamier texture, and this is more gelatin like.
If you have never tried anything with edible flowers or extracts, it tastes pretty much like it smells. Which makes sense considering how closely taste and smell are related.
Be sure to use rose water made for culinary use and not essential oils. It can often be found with the extracts or in the liquor department of the grocery store, or do like I did and buy a bottle on Amazon and have it on hand for forever and a day! You only need a small amount for the rose flavor to come through.
I served mine with lemon curd and a few rosemary flowers I plucked off my rosemary plant. It was a wonderful combination.
