granulated white sugar
(or ½ a cup edible dried or fresh rose petals or buds)
Optional: natural red/pink food colouring
Stir the sugar, water and rose petals (if using rose water, add later) in a pot, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat, place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and strain out and discard the rose petals.
(If using rose extract, stir it in now.)
Allow to cool. Taste, and if you like it stronger, stir in a little more rose water.
Pour into a jar or bottle and keep in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
