Jam Recipe and 6 months

Rose Petal Jam

  1. Puree rose petals, 3/4 cup water and lemon juice in blender until smooth.
  2. Slowly add sugar.
  3. Blend till all sugar has dissolved; (leave in blender) Stir 1 package pectin (ie. Sure Jell) into 3/4 cup water, bring to a boil, and boil hard for 1 minute. Pour mixture into blender with rose petal mixture until well blended.
  4. Do this very quickly – it sets up FAST!! Pour into baby food jars.
  5. Let set for 6 hours, till firm.
  6. Will keep one month in refrigerator.
  7. Freezes well.
As you can see it’s quite easy.  The darker and more fragrent the roses the better the jam, if you ask me.
JD had his 6 month well check today.  I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months!  Here are some stats:
  • Birth: 6 lbs. 9 oz. ~ 6 Month: 18 lbs. 5 oz.
  • Birth: 19 in.  ~ 6 Month: 27 in.
