This month for the foodblogswap October I was chosen to make a recipe from the blog: gewoon lekker gewoon (normaljustnormal, a Dutch blog). The blog belongs to Gerry who likes to eat, but don’t make haute-cuisine but normal food. When I read I had to make a recipe from her blog I had to take a peek and then I found a recipe of rosebud syrup. I looked outside to my rosebushes. This couldn’t be coincidence, all full of rose buds.
And thereby it’s a fact I love old-fashioned rosebud syrup. My grandmother used to have it when I came over. With lots of vitamins. That brings back good memories.
So I got in action. Harvest the rose buds, cook, sieve, it got a bit messy and add water and sugar. And then pour it into bottles. Cool it down and taste. It took a lot of time to get it cold enough, but my syrup got to be very cold otherwise I don’t like it.
But after one hour I could taste and.. it tasted just as with my granny. Wow. Thanks Gerry for the idea and the recipe (that I just changed a little).
