Chinese Rose Jelly
Chinese Rose Jelly. I had a lovely Chinese rose jelly dessert made from fragrant rosebuds and petals in my hometown Shenzhen, China last summer. That rose jelly was about the most beautiful and elegant thing I’ve ever seen for a lovely afternoon tea party. Perhaps only rose can deliver such beautiful scent and delicate flavor! I missed the flavor so much that I decided to make rose jelly by myself. I used rosebuds and petals I bought. Turned out this perfect, very rosy and pleasant afternoon tea dessert.

“Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,”
