Rose Jam & Rose Sugar




English Roses

today i decided to start on trying out to work wiht rose petals... someone at the german Chefkoch cummunity talked about a rose jam and reading that post made me want to make use of my moms beautiful old english roses - you can't imagine the fragrance of those - she has many kinds and they are all in bloom at the moment. so i went out there this morning and picked the ones that were almost ready to go anyway. This afternoon after work i tried those recipes. So far so good.. Jelly tastes very nice and sugar need to dry for a week. Cheers Alissa



Rose Petal Jelly

juice of 1 lemon
2 cups preserving sugar
(or 2 cups of sugar and 1 package of sure jell pectin)

Combine the rose petals, 3/4 cup of water and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until smooth. Slowly add the sugar and blend well.

Bring the 3/4 cup of wine to a boil in a pot and add the rose mix and cook till it starts to thicken. Fill in sterilized jars and seal.

Saft 1 Zitrone
2 Tassen Gelierzucker

Rosenblätter, Wasser, Zucker und Zitronen Saft in einem Blender oder mit einem Zauberstab pürieren.

Wein aufkochen und den Rosemix hinzufügen. Kochen bis es anfängt einzudicken. Sofort in sterile Gläser füllen.





Rose Petal Sugar

Shred or mince rose petals. Then pound sugar and rose petals in a mortar and pestle. Place on a covered jar for one week .
Sift out petal bits if desired and store in airtight container.

Rosenzucker


1 Tasse Zucker
2 Tassen Rosenblätter

in einem Blender zerhacken und in eine Schale geben (ist eher eine rosenfarbene Masse)diese dann abgedeckt ein par tage stehen lassen und dann wenn es getrocknet ist zerhacken (mit einer Gabel) und in Beutel oder kleine Schraubgläser fülle

Ist ein sehr schönes Geschenk und eignet sich für Desserts, Kuchen etc..
