Beltane Wild Rose Faerie Jam

 

 Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Fragrant Rose Petals, White Bases Removed
  • 2 1/2 Cups Super Fine Sugar
  • 1/8 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/4 Tablespoons Rose Water

 

In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Decrease the heat to the simmering point and add the rose petals.  Simmer for 5 minutes, until petals are pliable.  Add the sugar and lemon juice.  Bring back to a boil.  Decrease heat and simmer for 30 minutes.  Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture begins to thicken.  Add the rose water.  Let stand, until foaming.

To test for doneness, place a spoonful of the jam on a cold saucer.  Allow the mixture to cool and push on the surface; if it wrinkles, it is ready.  Allow the jam to cool slightly, then pour into sterilized jars.  Store in the refrigerator; the jam will keep up to two months.
