Rose-Scented Sugar

Filed under: Tea in Arizona — Kwingert @ 9:34 am

 

Mother’s Day is not to far and  very  roses are chosen as the expression of our love and admiration for Mom.

While a bouquet of roses will wither, this home made gift of rose sugar will last and impart its fragrance on many cups of tea Mom will enjoy.

RoseScented sugars can easily be made the same way the Europeans have been making vanilla sugar for years. For one pint of rose-scented sugar you will need the following:

  • to prepare scented sugar, use a clean pint jar with a tight fitting lid. Fill the jar about 1/3 full with sugar and scatter a small handful of very fragrant rose petals over the sugar
  • Cover the petals with sugar so that the  jar is 2/3 full, add another small handful of flower petals and cover with sugar to fill the jar, leaving about 1/2-inch head space.
  • Shake the jar and place on a shelf in a cool, dark place. The sugar will be ready to use in 2-3 weeks and will become more flavorful with age. As the sugar is used , add more plain sugar which will take on the fragrance in the jar.

You can also decorate the jar, create a fancy label and voila, you have a special gift for a special occasion!
