      YUM YUM YUM! I went without roses but I think I'll add some rosewater like CG did. I mixed this in with some chickpeas. It's going on rice in a few minutes. Made for NA/ME Tag 12/12! Thank you for posting!

      I had to substitute rose water for dried rose petals. I didn't have very much
      from our rose bush outside and the local stores were out of dried rose petals.
      We used this mixture on whole chicken and slow roasted for several hours. Served
      with basic Persian steamed rice and roasted vegetables. Yum! Reviewed for NA*ME tag November/December.

      Loved all the different flavors! I had this on corn and enjoyed, but can't wait to have it on squash. Thanks!
