Wild Rose Petal Jam made from wild rose petals  This homemade Rose Petal Jam is perfect on toast, scones, pastries or crepes or spooned over ice cream or cake. Makes a lovely gift.


  • 1 ½ cups of filtered water
  • 2  ounces wild rose petals (approx. 2 cups lightly packed or to what would be a perfectly comfy fairy bed) (preferably collected 50 feet from roads and in a pesticide-free area) or 2/3 cup dried
  • 2 cups organic cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Pomonas fruit pectin


  1. Place water and roses in a saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered.
  2. Add 1 ¾ c of sugar into the simmering petals. Stir to dissolve the sugar crystals.
  3. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice. Pay attention to the gorgeous vibrant color that emerges.
  4. Simmer 10 minutes over low heat.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ¼ cup sugar and pectin.
  6. While stirring the jam add the pectin/sugar mixture, sprinkle by sprinkle to ensure pectin incorporates without clumping.
  7. Simmer gently for 20 more minutes. It may seem quite loose for jam, but it will firm up as it sets but does remain more of a silky syrup with luscious bits of petals.
  8. This keeps for 2 months in the fridge, also freezes beautifully and canning is always a brilliant option.


  1. You do not need to add calcium water to this recipe.
  2. You can use food-grade, dried rose petals,  (readily available in natural food stores, in the bulk herb section) 1/3 cup dried rose petals = 1 cup fresh rose petals, readily available in natural food stores, in the bulk herb/tea/ spice section.
