    Makes: 1 300ml jar rose petal jam

    • 100g rose petals
    • 600g caster sugar
    • 200ml water
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Take a large rose, gather all the petals together and cut in such a way, that the white portion of the petals remains attached to the flower. If the petals have already been removed, trim the bottoms with a knife.
    2. Weight the petals to ensure the final amount is 100g. Place the petals in a mortar and add 100g caster sugar. Grind with the pestle until a paste forms.
    3. Separately make a syrup using 500g sugar and 200ml water with lemon juice. Let the syrup simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, then add the freshly made rose petal and sugar mixture and cook the jam for 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to sterilised jam jars and seal. Store in a cool place until needed.


    You can experiment with flavours – like cinnamon or orange juice. Have fun!

    Serving suggestion

    Very nice but very time consuming. Made this three times gradually increasing amount of petal processing. Last batch of petals were almost pureed in a mini food processor, otherwise you get petal fragments stuck in your teeth. Awful lot of washing up.  -  09 Jul 2016
