edible rose petals

Daniel C | Feb 11, 2002 08:44 PM

I'm planning on rose petal sauce for a brined and roasted turkey breast this Valentines day, but it seems impossible to find roses fit for consumption. Flower shops have roses, but are treated with various whatnots, so they're not fit for eating. And food stores respond with "huh?", or at best a polite "sorry, but we don't carry edible roses."

Does anyone know a source for edible roses? I need about a dozen or so. Closer to Pasadena would be better for me, but I'm willing to travel.
