Due to its strong citrus fragrance and aroma, it makes a colourful addition to meals where you would normally use lemongrass or balm, since the taste is similar but with much smoother texture and more joyful in colour. Nadia, a famous 24Kitchen chef, recommend it for use in Arab-Mediterranean cuisine where its aroma stands out the best. You can also use it in stews or in meat dishes where it goes along well with beef and pork. Garnish fish or seafood with petals of this variety for it will not only give it an interesting appeal but also add a desirable citrus taste. You can also use it in confectioneries such as rose petals preserve or to decorate cakes.
