    Using the rose is a new experience for me and I love it.
    I have used rose water for a long time. But I appreciate it even more now.
    I have used rose petals in my chocolate making. I make a bon bon with roasted pistachio and rose petals.
    I don’t have much experience with the leaves, but I have them in my tea cupboard and will start experimenting.
    My current favourite herbal mix for tea is rose petals, nettle, pea flower, mint and shell ginger. (a herb i brought from Okinawa)
    Rose and Tulsi is also delicious!
    I also like to lightly roast the petals and then crush them between my fingers and sprinkle on my coffee or chicory latte.
    I have made my first rosehip vinegar this month. I am still waiting to try it.
    And I have been picking rose hips here and there to use for tea. Or just to nibble like that.

    I guess it depends per day, but being vegetarian, and loving to cook, I eat alot of veggies every day. I would say 500 to 1000g.
    I live in Amsterdam so it would be impossible to forage this amount. I am still new to foraging in Amsterdam and have not found my preferred spots.
    We spend time in Italy in the mountains a few times per year and I am also observing spots to learn if that could be good foraging spots. I still feel very unexperienced but already having the awareness and starting to notice plants is great!
