Rose liqueur

Apothekerrose-Officinalis-2

My grandmother had two large tea rose bushes. All real genuine roses are usually edible (unsprayed of course, from your own garden). My grandmother's tea roses were particularly delicate and especially fragrant. And the most important thing was that the roses were extremely healthy – because the leaves of tea roses have a unique bactericidal effect that remains even after thermal processing (i.e. cooking). The recovery from a cold was accelerated, the immunity was enhanced and stomatitis was defeated. 

As a child I was allowed to drink my grandmother’s rose liqueur. No, wrong, I was not allowed to, but I did it skilfully(!).  My grandmother’s liqueur was stored in a small teapot made of the finest porcelain. The teapot was always on the kitchen table. Was the teapot a kind of camouflage? I think so.  It was not in a transparent bottle and that was a good thing. I was able to secretly snitch a little bit… and a little bit … m-e-l-t on my tongue. And I was lucky - I was the only grandchild, which means if there would have been more grandchildren around, grandma would have discovered the missing liqueur immediately. The liqueur was so nice and sweet; it was even sweeter because it was forbidden and yet even sweeter because you got to drink it through the “nose” of a teapot.

Here is the recipe:

rose petals - 300 grams
sugar - 2-3 kg
water - 2-3 litres
citric acid - 1 tablespoon
vodka - 0.5 litre

Preparation: Boil the sugar and water, put the flowers in the syrup and let rest for two days in the cold. Then add the citric acid. Let it stand for one hour. Sieve the mixture through gauze. And now the most important thing – add 0.5 litre vodka.

By the way: the picked rose petals may not be used the next day. It is best to process them IMMEDIATELY!
