Rose Syrup


I was entranced by Clarice at Storybook Words telling of how rose syrup makes her feel pampered. And I thought, how exotic - rose syrup! Then I read the directions on how to make and was even more entranced. It's so very easy! I started with this bowl of rose petals and followed Clarice's instructions. (Except I used about 6 cups of petals and 6 cups of water, 3 cups of sugar)



Today, this is what's sitting on my counter! I had some leftover that didn't fit into the jars. I'm going to make her Rhubarb Rose Fool this weekend. What a great idea!

I took a little taste and oh, what a flavour - the essence of roses!

This looks interesting. I am in the middle of a pot of rose petal jelly that I bought in a National Trust shop. It is very pleasant. Wonder if this tastes the same.

Mantels made a different post.

Almshouses generally rented out these days and I guess to people in the parish. The local library in my post was one of the almshouses there.

Oooo - this is very intriguing. I've had rose water candy before but never syrup.
