WHB #37: Rose Petal Champagne Jelly

This week its Kalyn’s turn to do the recap of her Weekend Herb Blogging .

Last year we spent our holidays in Scotland. I was delighted with all the roses in the tiny front gardens and their beautiful fragrance.

At home I dreamed about my own red Austin roses in my garden and here they are:

If you open a window, the nice smell comes into the house.

I don’t have enough blossoms on my own, so I used the fragrant roses from my neighbour to prepare a

Rose Petal Champagne Jelly

It taste as it smells: roses and the whole house is sweet with roses.

    Nice Roses!
    I like the two rose bushes by the side of the walkway. I have a neighbor who has the most beautiful roses. He must know some secret because my own are not that healthy. I like the sound of this jelly.

    You have so many beautiful roses there! Lovely, lovely! I love the smell of roses. I love bathing in sea salt with lots of rose petals in them. My luxury bath indulgence!
