Rose Water

I love to use rose water in baking, but it is so expensive. Make it fresh at home for much less.

Such a luxurious treat for you and your family!

Jar it and give it as gifts this holiday season.

Ingredients

2 qt
rose petals
enough water to cover
bag of ice
large pot with rounded lid
small pyrex bowl

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot with a lid, place your fresh petals in a pot. Add just enough water to cover.
2
Heat to a rolling boil. Lower heat to low and place a Pyrex bowl in the center of pot on top of petals Then, place your pot lid on upside down. That way you create a concave surface to put your ice and a convex surface for the rose water to distill.
3
Place a large bag of ice on the lid. This will make a distiller of sorts because the boiling water's steam will hit the lid's cold surface and become liquid again and drip into bowl.
4
Peek every so often to make sure your petals aren't dry. You may also need to top of ice every so often.
5
After about 40 minutes, you should have rose water in your bowl. Discard pot contents.
6
This can be used in baking recipes or even syrups by mixing with honey. Or even rose jam! This can be used as an astringent for face or a perfumed after shower spritzer for body. Even a linen spray for sheets. Enjoy!
