Fresh roses? No thanks! Give me a few dozen dried rose buds so I can make some Homemade Rose Syrup 😄
Pairs well with lattes, black coffee, teas, steamers, and homemade sodas!
Click on the photo above to be taken to our YouTube where you can watch them being made. The instructions are also included below.
1 cup of sugar (I use organic cane sugar which makes the syrup more on the brown side) which doesn't bother us. If you use white and refined, the syrup may be a bit pink 😍
1 cup distilled water (tap is fine but shelf life won't be very long if not kept in fridge) I have only used distilled and it can easily last for a full 7-10 days outside of fridge. We usually use it up before then 😊👍🏻.
1/2 cup dried roses
**** if you want a stronger rose flavor, substitute 1/2 - 1 cup of the water for rose hydrosol (make sure it's the kind you can drink - not rose water that has tons of fragrance and preservatives in it).
Bring water and sugar to simmer. Add in roses once sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 3-5 mins then mash roses. Simmer for another 3-5 mins and mash again. Turn heat off and once it cools completely, strain flowers as shown in video and store in glass container. I like 1 tbsp. per 12 ounces. YUM!
