Rose Jam

Rose Jam

Rose Jam
4 cups rose petals
1 cup water
2 ¼ cup sugar
¼ cup lemon juice

Cut away the white bases of the petals. Rinse.
Cover petals with water and heat very gently for about 30 minutes.
Remove petals and set aside.

Add sugar and lemon juice. Boil rapidly until only a thick syrup is left.
Mix petals back in and seal in jars.

Notes: The white part is bitter, it really does have to be cut away.
Deep red heavily scented rose petals work best.
