Rose Petal Jelly

1 cup rose petals
1/4 cup rose water flavoring or 1 tsp rose extract
3/4 cup water
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 tblsp honey
1 tsp lemon juice

Pick tender rose petals until you have a well-packed cup. Cut into
fine pieces and wash in a colander or large strainer. Place petals,
rose water flavoring, and 3/4 cup water in a saucepan and simmer
for 5 minutes or until petals are soft. Strain petals and measure
1/2 cup of remaining liquid (add water if you have less). Return
liquid to saucepan. Add sugar and honey and bring to rapid boil.
Return petals to sauce pan and reduce heat. Simmer very slowly
for 20 minutes, stirring constantly, then add lemon juice and cook
for 5 minutes more. Pour into heated jars and seal with paraffin.

Once we accidently overcooked this recipe and made a delicious
discovery. The mixture had become too stiff to make jelly, so we
dropped it by spoonfulls on a greased cookie sheet and enjoyed rose
petal candy instead! Yield: 2 small glasses.
