Where can I find Rosewater for baking?

    Zituna has the largest selection. I like Cortas (brand) personally. It's the least expensive and the best tasting.
    A middle eastern gentleman (not in the food business) I know recommended it. Amongst it's many uses, I also swirl it in plain yogurt and vanilla ice cream. If you like "Cream of Wheat", swirl a little bit in it, too. Amazing!
    While your there, pick up some orange flower water as well. Amongst it's many uses, I like it best drizzled over sliced fruit (oranges, peaches, etc.) with a (light) shake of cinnamon and sugar. You won't believe how good that is!
    I'm using Indo-European (brand).
    A warning: These flower waters are addictive. You'll find yourself drizzling them on almost everything but mashed potatoes.
    Also keep in mind, a little go's a very long way!

      I was at Jimmy's over the weekend and saw it there.

        Believe Williams-Sonoma has it. Be sure you don't use so much that your baking tastes like soap ;)

          Since you are in Highland Village you might try out AL Markaz in Carrollton before you make the trip all the way to Richardson. They have quite a large grocery section and it might be worthwhile to give them a call before you leave to verify they have rosewater.
