Dried rose petals can be transformed into many wonderful things. They provide an intoxicating fragrance to potpourri and satin sachets, add color to indoor decorations and create romantic confetti for weddings.
Store dried rose petals in cans or glass jars. The preserved flowers can be stored that way for extended periods. Make sure the storage containers seal tightly to prevent insects from entering and eating the petals. Do not store them in direct sunlight. Add them to potpourri, add rose petals to your favorite drink or enhance a rose cocktail, create a festive rose petal punch, or indulge in some refreshing rosewater. Rose petals are an important ingredient in the famed 'Potli Masala' used to create many Hyderabadi dishes of the bygone Nizam era.
