Having a jar of this in your fridge is brilliant. My favourite way to eat it is with oily fish, such as mackerel or sardines. The rose petals are delicate and fragrant, and nicely balance the heat of the chillies. You can pretty much eat any garden rose, just make sure they haven't been sprayed with pesticides. If you can find some really wonderful-smelling roses, you'll notice their fragrance will come through in the harissa.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
