Fatma learned how to make this sweet from her friend who lives in Rize, a province in northeast Turkey. According to the story, two lovers would make this dessert when they were at odds with each other, in hopes of reconciling. Gonca gül tatlısı are also prepared at every stage of a courtship — during the proposal, to celebrate the engagement, and to eat during wedding parties, as a symbol for happiness and love.
