Rose petal jam can be made with any organically grown unsprayed fragrant roses. I used the Cecile Brunner which made a pale pink jam. My neighbor spiced things up, so to speak, by adding a few Mr. Lincoln petals for a richer, dark pink color.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In food processor or blender, process rose petals, lemon juice and 3/4 cup water. Slowly add sugar until thoroughly blended. Pour mixture into large bowl (a large mixing bowl with pouring spout is ideal). Set aside.

  • Combine pectin and 3/4 cup water in small saucepan. Stir to dissolve and bring to a boil. Allow pectin to boil hard for one minute.

  • Pour pectin over the rose petal mixture and stir. This will start to set very quickly. Spoon or pour mixture into clean containers and refrigerate. It will continue to set as it cools.

Tips

The sugar did not completely dissolve so the jam is opaque. I've also made the jam by first making a sugar syrup (cool before making jam). That batch was more translucent, but I preferred the texture without dissolving the sugar first.

We made this last weekend using petals from our Belinda's Dream rosebush. I had never heard of rose petal jam or jelly until a few days before certainly had never eaten it. I was a little wary of what it would taste like but it's unusually wonderful a delicate rose flavor very sweet. Must be like what a hummingbird is tasting. We plan to give it as gifts. We washed the jars and lids in the dishwasher then boiled them in pans of hot water leaving until ready to fill. One recipe made 3 and a half jars (I think they were 6 or 8 oz. size jars. Anyway you should allow for 4 jars if possible. And it's so pretty! Whatever color the roses are that will be the color of your jam. This was a huge hit as a gift at Christmas. So unusual! Read More
