For those interested I just posted the recipe for rose-syrup.
The syrup is sold in Indonesian shops but can be made easily by yourself.
For each 140 gram rose petals add 1 liter water and 1 lemon (cut to pieces).
Let it soak for a few days and the sieve it (I use a bucket sieve).
Then add to each liter of this tea 1 kilo sugar and boil it for a few minutes.
Your complete house will have the fragrance of a rose garden......
Next use the syrup as:
- for making lemonade
- as a topping for icecream
- for making icecream
- as flavorer and a sweetener for a dry wine
- for making wine
The syrup tastes just like roses smell !!!
So it is something you will have to get used to....
