AARS (All-America Rose Selections)
It takes a little time to navigate the All-America Rose Selections Web site but you will find good, concise information. There are descriptions of the AARS winners and suggestions for designing with roses.


Rose petal Vinegar
4 cups white vinegar
2 cups red rose petals

Heat vinegar to boiling and remove from heat. Pour into a glass jar with a lid and add rose petals. Put on lid and place in a dark, cool spot for a week.

Strain out petals and pour into decorative bottles.

Delicious on fruit salad or piquant green salad with a little light flavored oil. Also makes a great after-shampoo rinse or addition to the bath!
