Rose-Infused Honey
Recipe type: Infusion
Serves: 1 cup
  • 1 cup raw honey
  • ¼ cup rose petals
  • ¼ cup rose hips
How To Make
Sun Method
  1. Place rose petals and rose hips in a sterilized glass jar, pour honey on top.
  2. Stir with a clean spoon to coat fully with honey. Seal jar tightly. Label with recipe name and date.
  3. Infuse honey by placing jar in a sunny spot for a week, or 2-4 weeks for a stronger infusion.
  4. Strain honey with a fine mesh strainer (optional). This can take a while for the herb-infused honey to drip out. I like to set up my strainer over a clean jar and do other things while it takes its sweet time.
  5. Seal jar and store in a cool, dry place (usually your cupboard or pantry works).
Stovetop Method
  1. Add 2 cups of water to the pot of a double-boiler and place a bowl on top. Pour honey into bowl and heat over very low heat. Add rose petals and rose hips. Heat for 4 hours, adding extra water to pot as needed.
  2. Turn heat off and carefully pour honey through a fine mesh strainer into a sterile jar. Cool honey for 1 hour at room temperature.
  3. Seal jar and store in a cool, dry place.
