Jumbles and rosewater

Yesterday and the day before I mentioned baking Jumbles flavored with rosewater. They are done. They are soft and rich and yummy except for the rosewater part. Kate likes them, Bruce will eat them, but I won’t. They taste like the smell of clothes from my grandmother’s attic!

I’m guessing rosewater is one of those tastes like cilantro. Some of us just aren’t wired to enjoy it. We’ll make them again some time but flavor them with vanilla and almond, or orange when we do.

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.

    I’m with on rose water! A lot of Indian sweets use rosewater and, to me, it was like eating perfume….no thanks! But they look pretty.
