● 200 g rose petals of a 100 petal rose variety
● 950 g sugar
● 900 g water
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Separate the rose petals from the stem.
With one hand, grab the stem and with the other hand grab all the rose petals and pull apart to separate the petals from the flower.
Using a pair of scissors, cut the bottom part of the petals that are white and discard.
Wash the petals and drain well on a towel.
In a large pot, put the water and sugar and boil for 10 minutes.
Next, add the rose petals.
Simmer on low heat for 30-35 minutes. Once the syrup has reached the desired consistency, add the lemon juice.
To see if the syrup is ready, put a spoonful of the syrup on a saucer and once it has cooled we can see how thick it is. If it is too watery, boil the syrup for another 5 minutes.
