Mint rose syrup

Mint rose syrup

Rose water is obtained as follows: we take 120 rose flowers, rinse them with water in a sieve and boil them like this with a spoon in 1.5 l of water.

Let it boil until it drops to about 1,200 l. Add the lemon salt and let it boil.

We take it off the fire, strain the water, let the flowers cool and squeeze them well in our fists so that all the liquid comes out.

We put the resulting water on the fire again with 1 kg of sugar and let it boil over low heat, until it thickens like a syrup and decreases to about a liter. after it boils for about 20 minutes, add a handful of mint and let it continue to boil until it is ready.

Let it cool, then remove the mint that will become dry approx and put the syrup in bottles.

We add a drizzle of fresh mint in the bottle, it will keep a fresh aroma.

Serve with mineral or plain water and ice cubes for pleasure.

About homemade liqueurs and alcohol used in their preparation

We are glad that our recipes for cherries, blueberries, apricots, cherries or raspberries are so popular among our readers! You will find their recipes at the end of the article.

They do not contain the messages that thank us for the recipes. Everyone is very happy that, finally, the sour cherry does not smell of brandy, that the blueberry is ruby ​​and has blueberry flavor, that the liqueurs do not "stink" and that they will never use another recipe. We are very happy, dear ones, that you have discovered that an indefinite brandy or a brandy has nothing to do with a fine liqueur. The alcohol used must be neutral so as not to cover the taste of the fruit. Otherwise we will only get a vagina with a vague aroma of cherries, blueberries or in this case, roses and from which we have all the chances to hurt our heads.

Fine liqueurs are made with double refined alcohol or vodka because these two are neutral in terms of smell and do not interfere with the main ingredient: mint, raspberries, cherries, sour cherries, quinces, etc. - I leave the recipes at the end. Vodka and commercially refined double alcohol are made from cereals or potatoes, so they are also natural. A fine homemade liqueur must have an alcoholic strength between 22 and 30 degrees.

Your words of thanks and praise made us prepare this delicate and fragrant rose liqueur. I don't even want to know what horror would come out if I put brandy, brandy or even brandy in this delicacy. These homemade drinks are consumed as such, they do not mix with anything else.

The recipe for homemade rose or rose liqueur is extremely simple and is based on rose petals, vodka and a sugar syrup. We do not advise you to use honey because it ferments, in addition to covering the aroma of roses and changing the taste of liqueur.

Cherry syrup with mint & # 8211 simple recipe

I want to surprise you through the photo, with an object that you will be able to see in the presentation image below the ingredients, a glass straw. This is what the straws for sipping soft drinks looked like, before the plastic ones appeared on the market.
Because I am preparing such a syrup for the first time, I will write the recommendations of Chef Maniac who convinced me to try, through the advice he made public.
You can buy cherries or cherries especially for this purpose,

or as I recommend, but it results in a small amount, I used a part of the syrup at most that remains from the cherries that boil for jam. The juice inevitably self-separates when we remove the seeds and as soon as we put the fruit to boil. If you make only special syrup, boil the cherries with seeds (very well washed of course) and then press them through a large diameter sieve. I was telling you that this year the cherries and cherries are full of fruit, because it rained a lot

Unfortunately, I could not see the same thing in apples.

1 liter of juice left by cherries / cherries +
0.5 kg of sugar
fresh mint (about 10 leaves or more) & # 8211 or vanilla stick, cinnamon, or lemon


1. So, I used the juice left by the cherries when I took out the seeds. I didn't keep cherries in sugar for jam, I prepared according to this recipe. When you put the cherries / cherries to boil, in the first quarter of an hour they will leave a large amount of juice. Well, collect some of this syrup with a polish, after frothing well

and strain it through a sieve. I say part (about half), because there is still room for jam.
2. Boil this syrup with sugar,

until it drops by almost half or you can leave a little more if you use it only for drinks, not for cakes. It will be more fluid after cooling and will dissolve faster in water, otherwise it is thick, slightly gelled.
3. Towards the end, add a small handful of mint leaves (about 10 or more if you want it strong flavored, it will be diluted with water anyway).

4. Then put it in clean, sterilized bottles that close tightly (see HERE how to sterilize bottles and jars).
5. Optionally, you can add preservative (in the amount indicated by the manufacturer) or aspirin. Because it didn't turn out much syrup, and it won't be stored in the pantry for long, I preferred not to add anything to it.
6. Optionally, you can flavor it, to taste, with vanilla or cinnamon instead of mint.
Cherry / cherry syrup, if well bound, can be used as a topping for ice cream, cakes, can be used in creams, or can be used to prepare a delicious very refreshing juice with plain or carbonated water! Pour the syrup and water into the glass to taste and add ice + a few mint leaves or a slice of lamiae.
Gorgeous color, right?
Liv (e) it!

Mint syrup

Mint syrup, simple recipe, with natural ingredients, cheap, recipe prepared according to the grandmother's cookbook, from 1925.

I am a beginner in terms of putting pickles, cans of all kinds. Last year, my first year as a housewife at her house, being pregnant, I did not dare to try too much.

I then prepared jams of several kinds: blueberries, peaches, cherries. This year it's time to move on to heavy artillery: pickles, compotes, syrups. I first saw the recipe in an old issue & # 8211 hat! for about two years & # 8211 Freedom Recipes and I found it very interesting.

Then I found her in Mrs. Comsa's book and I said it was worth a try, especially since this year I had a generous mint bush in my mother's garden. So I started making mint syrup.
