A Rose is a Rose is a Rose...

It’s nice to remember how flowers, in this case roses, used to smell.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed that our new and very pretty flowers, available at your local grocery store or online, have virtually no scent at all. Is this food related? Why do we now have produce that looks awesome until the moment it rots. There’s no ripening that I can tell. It one day looks great and the next is trashed. However I have noticed some very lovely tomatoes…

The same goes for spices. It’s hard to avoid the larger container of any spice when it’s $0.60 more than the small one. You never want to be without, right? Maybe the solution is to buy two of the smaller containters… open them one at a time. Nothing is worse than paprika that has lost it’s fragrance or cayanne with a tempered oomph… except, of course, a rose with no smell.
