Can anyone point me to a source for the above?

I can buy it at our local grocery store in the Indian section, but I don't suppose that helps you much, does it? Amazon has it, too.

Ah, okay, will check Amazon.  Thanks.

Probably won't buy the rose water, but the chai rice pudding sounds TDF!

DH bought some in the UK at Mark's and Spencer (not much of help for you, I know) especially for a specific cocktail he wanted to try. He ended up tossing the cocktail - it was nearly undrinkable, smelled - and tasted - like soap LOL My guess was that he used way too much.

Years ago I found a recipe I wanted to try with rose water. Searched all over, finally found it. Lost the recipe, never found it. Finally tossed the rose water last year...I think?:)

Asian grocery. And I just noticed it our supermarket the other day, as someone said, with the Indian stuff.

Well, I've sent the home's official shopper off to check the Indian section of the local.  Hopefully he can find it there.  If not, you've given me several options.  And I don't need it for a couple of weeks, so there's time.

Well that's a timely query.  After reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, DS was very curious about Turkish Delight.  We tried to no avail to find rosewater--the local health food/bulk food store had only "topical" rosewater, for making hand lotion and such.  We ended up searching through their extracts and buying strawberry (DS's choice).  It was good, but I really missed the rosewater.

I'll be using it in a strawberry sorbet, assuming I acquire some.  If not, it will become optional.  *L*

I bought some at Superstore once.

Really? It never even occurred to me to look there--I went straight to Nutters.  Do you remember what part of the store you found it in?

What do they call that section? "Foreign Food"? It would either be with the Indian foodstuff or Middle Eastern.

Gotcha, thanks.  I'll check this week.  Is it in a little bottle, like vanilla?

Sometimes. But I recently saw it in a good sized one.

No it's in a much bigger bottle...similar to this:

If you can't find, let me know. I could pick one up when I go to Regina.

Huh.  Never seen it, but then I've never really looked before.  Thanks for the offer of shopping help, but I'm going to be in Wpg in April, so I'm sure I can find it there.  I'm still determined I'm going to make it to M-ville one of these days.

Yep, as soon as all the stars and planets line up . . . I was hopeful for a bit last winter, since we were thinking about taking the kids to a speedskating meet in your town, but then we realized we had a conflict and couldn't make it.

rose and bergamot are my favourite turkish delight flavours.

Evelyn, do you have a Turkish delight recipe?   I Googled one and it's ok, but I'd love a T & T.  DS wants to make another batch to take to school, since they watched the Narnia movie a couple of weeks ago.

I don't, actually.  It's just one of those things you'd never make here because there are so many good brands available everywhere.


Having said that, the best turkish delight I've ever had was made by this old widower in the adjoining suburb of Paleo Faliro.  I found him hawking his homemade delight one year on a street corner and asked for his address to order boxes to take to the village as gifts that Easter.  When I arrived at his tiny flat to pick up my order it was the most amazing scene.  He asked me to sit and wait in the hall area as he packed up my order and I literally sat on the edge of my seat as literally EVERYTHING in his flat was covered in a film of icing sugar!


He died a few years ago and took his recipe with him, but it really was exceptional - the rose water had pistachios in it, but the bergamot was plain.  It was soft, with a good 'pull' when you bit into it.  The most romantic candy ever.


I now buy a good-quality supermarket brand, but wish I could run into someone like him again.

I've bought it in Superstore as well, in the "ethnic" section. It was a decent sized bottle. The one I have in my cupboard is 10 oz. and has a price tag of $1.99...same with the orange flower water (which incidentally makes amazing marshmallows). Both are CLIC brand, though I can't guarantee that I purchased these particlar bottles at Superstore...it may have been at an ethnic market in Edmonton more recently.

If you live near a Shakers' community (there are very few Shakers left, so most of what you'd find is a Shakers' museum) they have   Rose Water for sale. The Shakers have a Christmas sale here (next area over- Sabbathday Lake, New Gloucester, Maine) every year in addition to other long not available craft and food items long gone from popularity.


Anyhow, mint water is also available from the Shakers and the Orange Flower Water I have is from France.

My mint and rose waters are from Sabbathday Lake as well. My mom brought it, I haven't been there in years.


When I was really little (before we got the place in Quebec), we used to rent a camp/cottage on Crystal Lake in Gray every summer for several weeks. I remember the Shaker Village and the Game Farm/preserve, it was like a zoo sort of but they also raised trout there for release. Those fish were so big they scared me, I was probably 5 or 6.

My parents also brought me to the game preserve in Gray, at least once a year from early childhood to my preteen years. Interesting at first, not so much in the later years.


I'm more interested in the Shakers now that I cook and garden than I was a long time ago. I usually go to their Christmas fair and make sure I get to their tent when I go to the Common Ground Fair. I like their selection of books that they have for sale. They're not the usual book store selection. I also buy their herbs  since I know where they were grown.

There are some shakers in the SF Bay Area, but the fewer they are, the better.  ;-)
