Rosewater syrup

ThankFifi-Rosewater-Syrup-1

Rosewater syrup (AKA Nectar of the Gods)

1 cup water
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon rosewater

Directions

Simmer water and sugar for 5 minutes until syrupy.  Stir in rosewater.  Once cool, decant into a suitable storage jug.

A little of this ‘Nectar of the Gods’ goes a long way.  Drizzle sparingly over any fruit you fancy (especially peaches, strawberries and watermelon) and, trust me, you are in for a treat.

    How interesting! I still have some rose water I bought from a specialty foods store in Morocco. I have only used it to infuse vanilla sponge cakes but never tried it on fruits. I will certainly give this a shot.

      oh you should definitely try it like this (and now I want to try it in a cake! – only other thing I ever used it for was rolling little almond macaroons in pre-cooking)

      thank you – was quite pleased with my peach display too 😉 (embarrassingly chuffed with myself actually…)

    serious yummers!! You are such a great and inspired cook apart from a most stylish and cool dresser!! 🙂

      not much cooking involved this time though – seems these days the only kind of cooking I have time for is the very VERY simple kind!
