So like I said I have been in a baking mood lately so I decided to make some brownies with rose water.

Ingredients:

1 stick of butter
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 TBSP rose water
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

butter an 8x8 pan and set aside
in a large sauce pan over medium high heat
melt the butter
remove from the heat

add the cocoa powder and stir well

add the sugar, again stirring well

let the mixture cool for 5 minutes or so

add the eggs beating well after each egg

then add the rose water
in a small bowl mix the flour and salt together

pour into the wet ingredients and stir well

do not over beat just stir to combine, making sure there aren't any flour spots left

bake for 25 minutes then turn oven off and let them cool 10 minutes
remove from oven and cool completely


These are a little too salty for my taste so next time I am cutting the salt to a 1/2 teaspoon.
But they are really good otherwise

SO I took my brownies in a box with me today, and had people sample them. The owner of the local Indian restaurant loved them, and told me to back a few pans and he would buy them for the buffet!

 

and everyone else who ate them loved them. So maybe I will leave the salt content alone. I'm just pretty sensitive to the flavor of salt because I never eat it on my food.

Really nice . . . too bad my local store just happens to be out of rose water.  I'll be making these soon, though.

you can make your own rose water. 

 

all you need is a large pot, a stone to place in the center of the pot, a mason jar, and four quarts of rose petals, and ice

 

Place the rose petals in the pan around the stone

 

Place the mason jar on top of the stone

 

Fill up the pot with water just until it covers the rose petals by about an inch

 

place the lid to the pot upside so the point of the lid hangs over the mouth of the mason jar

 

heat the water and rose petals to a boil, and then turn down to a simmer

 

put a tray or two of ice into the upturned lid

 

(This is a home made still)

 

Every twenty minutes or so remove the lid and dip out a few tablespoons of the water from the mason jar

When you get to the having a quart of water its time to stop (as there won't be much rose water left at this point)

Seeing as how I don't have four quarts of rose petals, I may have to wait for the store to restock rose water. :P

 

Thanks for the info.

HAHA yeah, it takes a LOT of roses to get a little water. And even more to get the oil. Thats why 100% pure rose essential oil will run you $70-$130 dollars a 1/2 ounce

Apparently, I am not supposed to make these brownies.  As I approached the shelf at the store, containing the last bottle of rose water, some lady accidently runs her cart into the shelf, knocking the bottle off.  It shattered on the floor.  Fucking seriously?  I am just going to make some brownies and eat them, indignantly.  So there!

I was watching a movie the other day, Rose Water Souffl√© was a menu choice in a restaurant scene. Couldn't help but think of you, RF. 

 

I've got to try this one day. :cloud9:
