Homemade Rose Juice recipe:
1 liter of water
500 grams of sugar
150 grams of rose petals (3 hands)
1 tablespoon of citric acid
Preparation: Boil water and sugar. Continue cooking for another 15 min.
Then allow to cool for 10 minutes (no more).
Peel the rose petals and toss the unwashed ones into the water for 10 minutes. Stir well and cover with lid. Leave for 24 hours in a cool place to stand. Stir occasionally with a spoon.
Strain the juice through a strainer with a gentle press of the petals. Do not crush the petals very hard, as your juice will be cloudy. Then strain the juice through a thick gauze (cotton cloth). Add citric acid and mix well.
Wash bottles / bottles well. Sterilize them with alcohol or a liquid preservative. Allow the bottles to dry and then heat them in the oven at 100 * C. Pour juice into bottles. Close them well and leave in a cool place. If they are in the pantry, juice bottles can last more than a year.
It is best to use dark bottles so that the juice does not lose color. If you have transparent bottles, you can wrap them with aluminum foil.
Dilute the juice with cold or mineral water with the addition of ice cubes.
