Rose Honey

1-cup fresh rose petals
2-cups honey

1. Use roses that have not been sprayed with insecticides. Choose petals that are free of dirt and insect nibblings. Wash thouroughly in cold water. Drain on paper towels or bamboo racks.

2. Using a small pair of scissors, snip off the white base of each petal. Place prepared rose petals into a measuring cup; stop when you have one cup.

3. Place the honey into a glass saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add the petals. Simmer for about 9 minutes; remove from the fire. Cover with a cloth and let sit for 24 hours.

4. Bring to a boil again over medium heat. Strain through a coffee filter into a glass jar with a close-fitting lid. Tighten lid well. Let sit for three days.
