This year at fair we are making sweet bags, or as you probably know them, sachets.
One of the ingredients mentioned often was rose petals. We have so many roses in front of the tavern we decided to dry our own, rather than purchase them.
Even the aftermath was pretty!
Fun thing I forgot about convection ovens is that they blow lots of air….so we ended up covering the trays with more trays (after we shut the doors the first time we lost a few….oops!). They took longer then they should have since they were covered, but we got there in the end!
We ended up with about a quarter of a bag full, and started with about a full bag fresh. I don’t know if they will last the whole run of fair, but I think we have a good start (and if not, I know where to get more roses!)!
