Q: Yesterday, on an impulse, I bought a bottle of orange flower water. Problem is, none of the cookbooks in my collection have a recipe that calls for it! Any ideas for how to use it other than a Ramos gin fizz? Maybe a springy dessert I could bring to my mom's house for Mother's Day? Sent by Julia Editor: Julia, here are two recipes from our archives that do call for orange flower (or orange blossom) water: • Lemon Verbena and Orange Blossom FizzMaine Blueberry Pancakes with Orange Blossom Maple Syrup The key thing to remember about about this ingredient is that a little goes a very, very long way. Just a dash will add an herbal fragrance to whipped cream, meringues, or other sweet things. But don't overdo it; its flavor can be overpowering if used too heavily.
