Rose Petal Jam

Pin It
Rose Petal Jam
i can't believe i've not heard of rose petal jam, or jelly until i saw this as one of the components of a verrine i intend to make. given my love for rose there was no way i could miss this out so i went ahead and bought the reddest rosiest red roses i could lay my hands on. i knew the color was gonna turn out pretty and striking and true enough, it was a blood red hue not unlike raspberry jam.

Rose Petal Jam
using only ingredients like rose petals, pectin, sugar and lemon juice, it was a pretty easy process though the prep time was slightly longer than i thought as i had to rinse every single petal and cut off the white bitter base of each one. it was also quite expensive to make since about $10 of roses could only yield me, say, a cup or less of jam. then again it was totally worth it. the jam was sweet-smelling and mildly floral, totally like fresh roses without that artificial heady scent of rose essence found in syrups or bath products. very nice! i had them with marks & spencers almond biscuits and it was really good!

I LOVE it Evan, the styling, and the rose plate, esp the white wood washed prop... I just got finished painting one and hope to use it next week.  You really inspire me to do better. P.S. I used your recipe, and it was FABULOUS!!!! 

Rock on Evan! MWAH!

yes they do stay as petals but you're supposed to strain them out anyway before putting them into jars. unless you like to eat them? haha

<span>yes they do stay as petals but you're supposed to strain them out anyway before putting them into jars. i did strain them and sometimes i don't state certain steps in my recipes coz i think its common sense, especially if someone is a seasoned baker they shd already know all these.</span>
