The Rose Fox
Rose foxes are a popular ingredient in the world of Culinaria. Their tails are covered in rose hips, which are humanely harvested to flavor many dishes. The oil is particularly prized for its versatility and ability to add depth to both sweet and savory dishes. Rose foxes are often kept as pets for their beauty and gentle disposition.
Rose Bud Tails
The buds of the rose fox are the source of their prized oil. The oil is extracted through a careful process of pressing the rose hips and filtering the result. It has a vibrant aroma and a sweet taste, perfect for use as a cooking or finishing oil and even a perfume in some kingdoms.
Searching for the Rose Fox
Rose foxes are beautiful, fascinating creatures found only in a small section of Pollenesia. After many failed attempts to find one in the wild, I was able to purchase a rose fox as a pet. I now keep him close at all times to cover some of the stench of my other babies. Researching the extraction and utilization of the oil has been a true culinary journey.

I think my favourite thing is 'I now keep him close at all times to cover some of the stench of my other babies.' They are so pretty, too.
Sir Salahad loves all his lil babies, no matter their fur, scales, or stink xD Can't wait to expand on these rose foxes and how they can be humanely utilized in kitchens!
