I went into the store the other day to purchase the lavender extract and they were out (must be good). I got the rose extract instead, but I wasn't as excited since my heart was set on lavender. I've never baked with floral flavor before, but I do like them in candies. So tonight I whipped up a batch of whoopie pies to test out the rose extract. I used vanilla cake base and added some cardamom to the batter. For the filling I used my usual vanilla butter cream, but did 1/2 vanilla extract 1/2 rose (I wasn't sure how strong it would be and I didn't want it to be overpowering). I Love it! The rose flavor is so light and refreshing. It's not minty but I would compare the ""refreshing"" feeling I get similar to mint, not heavy like chocolate or almond. If you are new to floral flavors, or making something for someone who is, I would maybe use even less of the extract. Doing 50/50 vanilla and rose in my recipe gave plenty of rose flavor without being too much.
I give the value 5 stars because I think with this extract, and flavor, a little goes a long wa
Best Answer:I do not believe so. I would also prefer an organic rose extract, but so far, after much searching, I have not been able to find one. We use this only a couple times per year, and the yearly rose cake for my daughter's birthday has become a tradition. All of the other ingredients we use are organic. Until I find an organic rose extract, we'll use this one. Otherwise very happy with the results. Received overwhelming compliments!
It says "natural roses" being used to make this extract. If that would be a pure organic product I'm sure no one would hide it. Knowing how gentle and sensitive rose plants are I would assume it makes it hard to grow organic ones in large quantities.
