Rose Petal Honey
This lovely honey can be made with any unsprayed rose petals. Regular use of rose honey is said to prolong life. I love to spread it on my toast; rose petals and all. Pour boiling water over a spoonful to make a tea that can ease premenstrual problems. Rose honey is thought to enhance fertility and to promote desire, too.
Lay an old sheet under a wild (or cultivated) rose bush.
Shake the bush so the rose petals fall onto the sheet. Give the bugs a moment to fly, run, and amble off.
Then pour the rose petals into a jar, filling it as much as possible (press hard).
Then fill the jar with honey. Label, lid, and wait six weeks before using.
