Rose Syrup



Not only are roses my favorite flower, they are surprisingly tasty and have many valuable benefits to your body.


Benefits include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Antimicrobial, Antioxidant and Antibacterial properties

  • Enhances bladder functions and urinary tract health

  • Helps aid in lowering blood sugar levels (especially helpful for those with diabetes)

  • Aids in reducing inflammation and joint pain

  • Fights stomach ulcers

  • Relieves kidney disease symptoms

  • Enhances heart health

Many of you may be thinking, you can't eat roses OR that just sounds gross, why would I want to eat a flower? On the contrary, you can eat rose petals either raw or within a product such as a syrup, water, etc. Not only can you admire their beauty, now you can consume them to harness their wonderful benefits as well.


But, take note, you'll want to consume rose petals that haven't been chemically treated.


In this blog post, I want to tell you about a syrup you can make from rose petals to enjoy over pancakes, in tea or coffee, or even in a glass of sparkling water.


Living in Las Vegas, where it some times is unbearably hot outside, it is imperative to have something cool and refreshing at your side. That's why I like to have some rose syrup made and plenty of sparkling water in the refrigerator.


To make the syrup, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 4-5 cups of loose, untreated rose petals

  • 4 organic lemons

  • 1/2 gallon of distilled water

  • (1) 5lb bag of sugar

Directions:

  1. In a large pot, cook the sugar and water over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved (approximately 5-7 minutes)

  2. Remove the pot from the heat and mix in the rose petals (make sure to wash them off prior to this step)

  3. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then transfer into a bowl and place in the refrigerator

  4. Store in the refrigerator for 24 hours

  5. Decant the mixture through organic linen and bring it to a rolling boil

  6. Now, stir in the juice from the (4) organic lemons and let cook for about 5 minutes

  7. When done, let it cool to room temperature and transfer your mixture into canning jars or any sealable jar

Store in a dark and cool space and use as needed.


What I like to do next is to take a few teaspoons of the syrup I just made and add it to a glass of sparkling water over ice.


If you want to get "fancy", sprinkle a few rose petals on top of the drink to make the drink look over the top!
