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
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

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:
