in search of orange flower water

Anyone seen orange flower water anywhere? I've checked BevMo, no luck.

    1. While this thread is from 2007 its information may well still be useful in your search for the elusive OF Water: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/469335 Hope you'll come back and report where you find it (and good to see you posting again as well).

        Thanks for that link. I did a search on "orange flower water" before I posted and nothing came up. Also, thanks for the welcome back. Reading that thread made me thing of checking C&K Imports since someone mentioned needing it for greek cookies.

      2. Any Persian market should have it. Wholesome Choice down here in OC, or any of the little groceries in West LA. Super King will have it for sure, and you might find it at Jons Markets too (though I don't know).

        1. not sure where you are located. try super king markets--have seen it at the altadena one, but i'd call first if there is a drive involved.

            Her profile says she resides in the "Oaks of Sherman" so the SFV (and not in those old Hills of Beverly)... ;-D>

              Thanks everyone, I found it at my local Jons. Going to be making Gin Ramos Fizz for brunch and it calls for 2-3 drops. All that for 2-3 drops!

                Thanks for reporting back. Hey, sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference! (and you'll have plenty left over for the next time too)

                  Yes, the bottle is so large, I'm thinking of bathing with it.

                    Watch out for amorous honey bees... ;-D>

                  well, if you bake, it's fantastic in madeleines or any cake. I put some in my crêpes batter. Very good with citrus salads, too. And, with plain yogurt and a bit of honey.

            2. You can buy this at most Middle Eastern stores and Indian stores. I've also seen it at Bay Cities in Santa Monica. And if I recall correctly, some Whole Foods carry it.

                Yes, I have seen it at Indian stores in Artesia.

              2. I buy it all the time at Jons, some Ralph's carry it (the one on La Brea & 3rd does, in the "ethnic food section across from the kosher products) Surfas has it. Any Persian market
                Jon's the best place because it's the cheapest, Surfas is the most expensive. Super King has several kinds.
                While you're at it, pick up some rose water. Very good in a winter fruit salad with citrus, and some pistachios.
