This recipe comes from a booklet called The Delicious Rose by Geraldine
Duncann. It was called Rose Melemell, although it has no honey. This is
an effervescent brew with a hint of summer roses.
- rose petals
- dry yeast
Fill a glass container with rose petals. Cover with water and let set,
covered by a clean cloth, for 3 days. Strain water through a cloth and
measure. Add to it, one quarter of its volume of white sugar. Set in a
glass jar or crock, add a pinch of dry yeast and stir well. When it is
sparkling (3 days to a week), put into beer or champagne bottles and
cap. Age 1-6 months.
