Rose Petal Jam...

Procrastination...

I have been meaning to make
Rose Petal Jam for a few weeks now...

When this morning I awoke to
a light frost on the lawns
I knew I was about to lose my chance...

(click photos to enlarge)

So today,
 I gathered a few last roses...


and made myself a small batch of jam...


One for the fridge,
to be enjoyed with tea and scones this week....
Mmmmm

and two for the freezer...
to be enjoyed on a snowy day
when roses are just a summer memory...


Now I am off to put the big fluffy comforter
on the bed :-)

Today I am joining...
Funky Junk Interiors For Saturday Nite Special
and
The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays

I will add this recipe
to the recipe tab under my header
in a couple days...
It is my first time using it
and it hasn't set up yet tonight :-)


Thanks for visiting me today!

Hello Bella,
I have never tasted Rose petal jam, but I do love the taste of rose petals. I sometimes, sprinkle a few on my salad.
When I was in Nice, France a few years ago I tried Rose ice cream and it was DEVINE!!! I also love rose flavoured pastilles which have a tiny anis seed in the middle. I think the comapany that manufactures them is Flavigny. I recommend them and the violet pastilles, too!!
Warm hugs, Laura

I'm right there with you! It is such a delicate light taste. I have not had any in years and years. Enjoy a bite for me, sweet girl. And, if I haven't told you lately, I LOVE visiting your blog! Hugs, Diana

When I was a child my grandmother told me that roses are edible. She used to put them once in a while in salads or on cakes. The jam not only looks beautiful but tasty. What a wonderful hostess gift to make. Saw you over at tablescaper's, love your blog. tami from the high street cottage

Dearest Bella,

Rose jelly is one of many things you can make out of them. Over the years I've gathered lots of recipes with roses... Romantic delicacies you can create and if you got enough, they make very special gifts too.
Your jars look so special with the ribbon tied around!

Sunny greetings from Georgia,

I had a few roses hanging on for dear life too. We may get our first frost this morning. I will have to see if I can find a recipe online - it sounds wonderful!

I love your white pumpkins and your rose petals jam is really interesting ...I can´t imagine the taste... Once I probed violet jam so, why not rose jam ?

I've never heard of rose petal jam. It sounds very interesting. Do you eat it, or put it on your skin? I bet it's sweet and smells wonderful though! Joining you from Seasonal Sunday!
