Rose Petal Jam
|Rose petals (old-fashioned pink roses)||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Lemon juice||2 Tablespoon|
|Sugar||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Water||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
Wash the rose petals well and remove the white part with a pair of scissors.
Place the petals into a saucepan and pour in the lemon juice.
Over low heat stir with a wooden spoon until the petals disintegrate.
Remove from heat and place the saucepan in a bowl of cold water, this will help keep the color bright.
In a separate pan, combine the sugar with the water.

Over low heat, simmer about ten to twelve minutes, stirring continuously until the syrup thickens.
Remove from heat and cool.
