Rose Sugar1 cup tightly packed, unsprayed very fragrant rose petals (like Hansa rose)
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar or to fill the 1/2 pint mason jar.
Mix together rose petal and sugar in a mason jar, and loosely cover the jar.
Let it stand for two days then shake it gently , if the sugar get's clumpy just tap it on the counter and it will losen up.
Every few days gently shake the jar to loosen the sugar and the rose petals.
Once the petals and the sugar become completly dry out , it's ready. It will take a few weeks to a month total.
Use: this sugar is delicious sprinkled on fresh berries or on cookies, also can be use in lemonade or any drink that calls for sugar.

Rose Sugar Using Dried Roses
Choose food-grade dried roses for this. Remove any stems or hard bases of the flowers.
2 cups sugar
1 cup dried roses
Combine in a food processor and pulverize to a powder. Sift through a four sifter or fine-mesh colander. Store in an air-tight container in the pantry or other dry, dark place to avoid loss of color.
Use some in whipped cream instead of vanilla, add to cake frosting, dust some on top of chocolate cake without icing.
