Reply:I don't have a recipe for this, but I know the origins are greek. You may want to look up some recipes if you have a good cookbook around.
Reply:Rose Hip Jelly
This is a recipe that comes from the Yukon Territory, but rosehips grow anywhere roses grow. You will lose a lot of the beneficial vitmin C when you boil this, but you still get the wonderful taste of the rosehips! Adapted from FoodService Recipes. What a great gift this would make!
8 cups rose hips
7 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon margarine or butter
1 (3 3/8 ounce) envelope liquid pectin (Certo)
Remove the blossom remnant from the rose hips.
Bring the rose hips and enough water to cover them to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Crush the rose hips or chop in a food processor.
Strain the juice in a cheesecloth-lined sieve.
Add any additional water if need to bring the juice up to 4 cups.
Bring the juice and sugar to a boil.
Add the margarine, then the liquid pectin.
Bring back to a boil, stirring constantly; boil hard for 1 minute.
Remove from heat.
Skim foam from surface.
Pour into sterile pint jars and seal.
Process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes.

Reply:I was a chef and we made it quite often, make sure the roses you use have not be sprayed with pesticides, it is a simple recipe, I make it like tea, I mkae up my sugar syrup and steep the rose petals in it over night then reboil it and then add my pectin powder or liquid, if you use rose water or syrup it is a one step thing, just the syrup the flavour and then the pectin.
It all depends on how much you want to make, a recipe is only good if you have the petals or the flavours to start, it is a simple as making straberry or peach jam without the mess, a touch of lemon juice is nice the brighten up the flavour.

Reply:It is important that you use roses from your garden or a garden that uses no pesticides.
1 cup fresh rose petals (must never have been sprayed with any chemicals) 3/4 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
2 1/2 cups sugar,
1 package pectin (ie. Sure Jell)
3/4 cup water
Puree rose petals, 3/4 cup water and lemon juice in blender until smooth. Slowly add sugar. Blend till all sugar has dissolved; (leave in blender) Stir 1 package pectin (ie. Sure Jell) into 3/4 cup water, bring to a boil, and boil hard for 1 minute. Pour mixture into blender with rose petal mixture until well blended. Do this very quickly - it sets up FAST!! Pour into baby food jars. Let set for 6 hours, till firm. Will keep one month in refrigerator. Freezes well.
