Rose Petal Wine

Have you ever tried rose petal wine?  I can’t say that I have ever have.

According to our good friends over at ol’ Google, a rose petal wine has a delicate floral flavor, best as a sweet dessert wine and wonderful for summer.  Don’t plan on having this right away though.  The longer it sits, the better it gets.  It can take up to a year for the mother to settle and the wine to clear.

Rose Petal Wine

Boil 8 pounds of sugar, 12 quarts water and 1 quart rose petals.  Put into a crock and let stand until lukewarm.  Add 1 ½ compressed yeast cakes and 1 cup lemon juice.  Leave the petals in and stir in the morning and at night for three weeks, then let stand until clear and then bottle tight.
