Fun In The Kitchen! Let's Make Rose Water!

  1. Gather fresh rose petals (free from pesticides and chemicals), and wash them in a bowl to remove any dirt or residue. I use 6-7 average sized roses.

  2. Place cleaned Rose Petals in a pot and add just enough water to cover the petals.

  3. Over medium heat bring the pot to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and cover

  4. Let simmer for 30-40 minutes or until petals have lost their color and are pale pink. You should notice oils on the surface of the water.

  5. Strain mixture into a jar, separating the petals from the water mixture.


  7. Discard rose petals and store Rose Water in an air tight jar in the refrigerator for up to 4 months or until it looks murky.
