(Story from Umagang Kay Ganda.)

Bouquets of red roses and flower arrangements are common sightings on Valentine's Day. 

So why not avoid being cliche and treat your loved one instead with these rosy treats?

1) Spicy Rose Sorbet

Turn that cold heart with this hot and spicy frozen dessert. Flavored with rose petals, the sorbet is made distinctly Bicolano because of that extra kick of spice.

2) Rose Jam

You can never go wrong with this mixture of sugar, water, and rose petals. Best thing about it? You can spread it on cookies to things even sweeter.

3) Mackerel with Florals

The carnation used for this main course doesn't only serve as adornment but as an additional ingredient.

Watch the video above for more information.
