Billy,

Nope, not a pioenroos but close enough.

It is from a normal pink-coloured rose.

We have over here some indonesian shops which we call
toko's and there they sell rose-syrup.
The rose syrup they sell however is often artificial coloured and
flavored.
I thought I should go for the real thing.......

As they are blossoming over here and I know a large field
I picked them and started to make syrup from the lot.

The complete recipe will be on my web-log next weekend.

And yes. You can make wine from rose petals.

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

Beware:
The syrup tastes just like roses smell !!!
So it is something you will have to get used to....

You can find the complete story on my web-log at:
