Recipe Tips

Dried Rose PetalsBe sure to use edible rose petals that are sold for cooking or tea making.   Look for them in Middle Eastern markets, health food stores or tea shops.

How to Use the Leftover AshtaServe the remaining unused ashta topped with your favourite fruits, such as raspberries, blueberries or sliced peaches.  Or, use it as a dessert topping or filling for your favourite pastry. 

VariationsSubstitute orange blossom water or vanilla for the rose water. Or, top the ashta-topped crackers with rose jam or any other red jam instead of the rose petals. Or for a shortcut, you can substitute mascarpone cheese for the ashta. Stir in a few drops of rose water or orange blossom water before using to top the crackers.
