Carrie and I had been planning to make rose petal jelly for some time.
She said she had a good-smelling rose bush on her street that would go well with my vibrantly colored one.
We waited all Spring for them to begin blooming.
The children and I picked lots and lots of petals from both bushes.

Rose Syrup

The resulting juice was very nicely perfumed and colored and I set to work turning it into jelly.
When the last of the jars were sealed and cooling, Roan asked about the little paper package on the counter.
The SureJell and it never went into the jelly.  Rose petal syrup, it is!

Rose Syrup

blakdove suggested adding it to club soda and so we did that.
It made a lovely soda for us flower enthusiasts, so not all is lost.
I might try to make some highly civilzed sweet tea with it, too.

I'll have to give it a go! The syrup does have a little lemon juice in it, since the jelly recipe called for it.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
