Rose petal confiture

This is a recipe taken from my Krakovian grandmother who used to pick rose petals from all the rose bushes that grew around her neighbourhood. Confiture is ideal as a filling for donuts and croissants.

 

Ingredients:

100 g rose petals

200 g custard sugar

6 tsp lemon juice

 

Even though I was very young I still remember her recipe which is extra simple. Just remember to keep a ratio 1:2 of rose petals to sugar.

You will need a makitra or pestle and mortar, clean your petals from dust and sand grains, remove the white part of petal (it gives a bitter taste), combine sugar with petals and crush them about 15 minutes into a fine paste, until you cannot feel lumps of sugar. Also, you could sprinkle the petals with lemon juice and leave them until the juice precipitate, and then start crushing.
