  1. Toss the rose petals and sugar together in a bowl until evenly coated. Cover, and let stand at room temperature overnight.
  2. The following day, bring the water to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the rose petals and all of the sugar, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, and return the mixture to a boil which cannot be stirred down. Stir in the pectin, and boil for 1 minute. Pour the jam into 4 sterilised 8 oz jars. Seal with rings and lids, and store in a cool dark place.


For this recipe and all others using rose petals, ensure you use organically grown unsprayed fragrant roses.
