Rose Syrup

We value roses very much because of their variety of colours and their scent. Scented roses are particularly suitable for this syrup and the resulting colour is beguiling. It tastes good in a glass of sparkling wine as well as in a glass of mineral water. Enjoy a mild summer evening with this special syrup or preserve the taste of summer into deep winter. This syrup can be kept for at least 12 months if properly processed, cool and dark.

1. Boil the water together with the sugar in a saucepan.
