Making Rosewater
Big thanks to Shannon for sending in all sorts of fabulous rose creations, including this rosewater craft recipe. She includes a reminder to only use organic roses - ones that have had no chemicals sprayed on them. :) This is a beautiful idea for using roses once the gardening season really gets under way...

Rosewater Method I
You'll need:
2 cup distilled water
1/4 cup 80 proof vodka
1/2 cup fresh rose petals

Place the rose petals in a large glass jar with a lid. Add the vodka and the water. Place the jar in a sunny window for 24 hours or so. Strain and keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Note: The vodka acts as a preservative.
