Rose Jam

(Gül Reçeli)

Rose Jam
100 g fragrant, more leafy Rose petals
2 1/2 cup sugar
2 cup water
2 + 2 tbsp lemon juice

Place rose petals, sugar and 2 tbsp of lemon juice in a medium-size pot. Crush the petals well with sugar and lemon juice, using your hand. Set it aside about for 4 hours. Then, add the water and cook for 20-25 minutes at medium heat, stir occasionally.

Take one spoon from jam on a cold plate, if it is not runny and stays, then it's done. After 2 minutes turn the heat off. Let it cool down, then pour into the clean jar to store.

Rosehip is one of my favorite jam/marmalade like Cherry (Morallo Cherries) Jam. If I find it here I am going to post the recipe:)

Hi Binnur,

I have to say rose jam is my favorite. My mom used to make it growing up. Manly because we used to have friends that had this special rose in their garden. Those people have since moved and now my question to you is what's the name of the rose used?
Thank you

It is fragrant pink rose (also can be in red or white - they are all
edible) as seen in the picture.
