Recipe: Rose Water

*Be sure to have a brick and heat-safe stainless steel or glass quart bowl ready before you begin*

* 2-3 quarts fresh roses/rose petals
* water
* ice cubes

1) In center of a large pot (the speckled blue canning pots are ideal) with an inverted lid (rounded), place fire brick into pot. On top of the brick place bowl. Put roses in the pot. (Add enough flowers to reach the top of the brick.) Pour in just enough water to cover the roses. The water should be just above the top of the brick.

2) Place lid upside down on pot. Bring water to a rolling boil, then lower the heat to a slow steady simmer. As soon as the water begins to boil toss two or three ice cubes trays (or a bag of ice) on top of lid.

*This creates a still. As the water boils, the steam rises, hits the top of the lid and condences. As it condenses it flows to the center of the lid and drips into the bowl.*

3) Every twenty minutes or so, quickly lift lid and take out a tablespoon or two of rose water. After the desired amount of rose water has been collected, store in a jar, vile, or bottle with a tight fitting lid.
