Recipe: Rose Sugar

Summer has faded into Fall, but the roses in my yard are still going strong. Marie of Knecht Ruprecht uses her rose petals to make Rosen Zucker, Rose Sugar. She first shared her technique on her blog. Read on, and learn how to capture the flavor of summer.

We have lots of roses in our garden blooming all summer in all different colors. Once a year we make our own Rose Sugar.



The rose enhances the flavor of the sugar and makes a beautiful decoration. It is great to sweeten a fruit salad or a cake or just sprinkle a little bit on top of cookies or fresh yogurt.

To make Your own Rose Sugar, use roses that you know have not been sprayed with chemicals. Pick the roses in mid-morning, after the morning moisture is off of them.
You can experiment with the rose colors. Use dark red rose petals for pink Rose Sugar for example.



Dry the rose petals.

Use a mortar



or rub Your dried rose petals between your fingers until they are fine.



Mix them with sugar and put all together in a preserving jar.



"Knecht Ruprecht is dedicated to handcrafted Waldorf dolls for any occasion and for every age. Since my own Waldorf schooling, I have created handmade toys from natural materials. I believe very strongly in the importance of dolls and dollplay in a child's life, and it is a great pleasure and honor for me to create these important little friends for children who accompany them through the most significant childhood years." -Marie

It would be beautiful on a sugar cookie! The roses look extra pretty with the green blog background, too.
