Because the water, which I used for the Victorian otto of roses recipe, smelled so wonderful of roses I came up with this rose water made by cold infusion.
- fresh organic rose petals
- water (I used tap water because it’s safe to drink where I live)
Put a handful of fresh rose petals into a glass of water (250ml). Let it steep for 2 or 3 days in the fridge.
Then strain the rose water through a sieve.
The rose water is clear, and has a nice scent and taste of roses. I liked this rose water very much: it’s fast and easy to make, smells and tastes of roses, and won’t stain clothes like colored rose water. I think this rose water won’t keep for very long, but it so easy to make fresh rose water when needed.
