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.
