Wild rose salt is a beautiful, floral, and super tasty pink salt made from wild rose petals and flake salt. It is very simple to make and the salt stays good for a long time. Use wild roses from a non-polluted area and make sure you inspect each petal for insects. The Latin name of the wild roses is “Rosa Rugosa”, which in my opinion is the best wild rose to use for optimal taste and appearance.
