Dried rose petals

Dried rose petals are useful for a little of everything, the easiest way is to dry your rose petals in the oven. Carefully pick the petals off the flower. Fill a tray with rose petals and leave them inside at 50 degrees for a couple of hours or until all the petals have dried properly. They are best kept in an airtight jar, if you choose a glass jar they are also beautiful to look at.
