The Hirshon Russian Rose and Rum Jam - лепесток розы варенье с ромом

The Hirshon Russian Rose and Rum Jam – лепесток розы варенье с ромом

  • Total Time: 0 hours


Units Scale
  • 300g rose petals (unsprayed damask rose, dog rose or similar, are best – be SURE they are unsprayed, do not use commercially-bought roses for this!)
  • 600g sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp Vana Tallinn (preferred) or spiced dark rum (TFD Change – original was dark rum)


  1. Pick over the rose petals, removing any debris, leaves, insects etc then trim off the petal bases (these can be bitter). Coarsely chop half the petals in a food processor then add 200g sugar and half the lemon juice and rum. Blend to mix then add a further 200g of sugar.
  2. Mix for 1 minute in the processor, scraping the sides of the food processor bowl. Turn the resultant mixture into a large bowl then repeat the process with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pack the resultant mixture into small jars (about 250g), rapping the jars lightly on a work surface to remove any air bubbles. Cover with tight-fitting lids then store in a cool place. Allow to mature for at least 2 months before use. If used sparingly the preserve will last for up to a year (which is why small jars are a good idea).
