Rose water

Basic

The best rose water is the one that has been distilled, but this is not an easy thing to do by yourself. Rose water as sold in stores for Middle Eastern products, special delicacy stores and some special supermarkets is usually distilled. However, there is also flavoured synthetic “rose water” for sale. Tastes could differ. We will describe here a simple way to make rose water on your own.

Ingredients
½ l water
50 g fragrant edible (unsprayed) rose petals

Preparation

Boil water in a pan and put a half of rose petals in it. Keep this in a closed pan for about 10 minutes at the boil. Strain the mixture and press the rose petals. Add the other half of the rose petals to the liquid and hold it again at the boil for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid again and press the rose petals well again.
Pour rose water in a bottle and store it in the refrigerator. It can only be kept for a short period of time.
