Directions:
Use only petals from red and pink roses. White and yellow roses are too thick and veiny to soften in cooking.
Dissolve citric acid in water. Wash petals first, then rub petal in citric solution between thumb and fingers. After this is done, pack petals fairly tight in measuring cup. One cup of petals to one cup of sugar. Add a drop or two of pectin to help stiffen. Cook slowly until jam drops slowly off spoon. Pour in jars and seal with paraffin.
This jam was prepared in Sallye’s kitchen. Its unusual and delectable flavor is unmatched.
