What a whirlwind it has been over here getting ready for our First Annual BOHO Farmers/Flea Market!
It was a huge success with over 500 people coming thru our garden gate.
I will post more this week, but until then I am going to share with you my recipe for Rose Petal Jelly.
I first saw this jelly when I was in the South of France at our friends confiserie.
(You can learn more about that trip here.)
Returning to the states with me was many jars of their amazing confit de petales de rose
and I proceeded to worked on duplicating the recipe and this is the results.
We made a bunch for the farmers market and it sold out quickly,
but don't worry, we will be making more!
Rose Petal Jelly
4 cups scented rose petals (they must be from your garden--the ones from the store will not work)
2 cups water
3 1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 package of Certo Liquid pectin
Wash the rose petals and place in pan with water. Cover and bring to a boil.
Immediately remove from heat and set aside to steep. Add sugar and lemon juice;
bring to a full boil. Add liquid pectin and bring back to a boil, stirring constantly.
Boil till thickens, remove from heat and skim off any foam. Fill the sterilized jars 1/8"
from the top, and place them into the canner, to boil for 10 minutes.
This is especially good on scones or with a fresh baguette, slathered with butter
and topped with this amazing jam. Enjoy!
Another fun thing that happened last week is Alison from The Polohouse nominated
our little BOHO Farm for a Stylish Blogger Award. Alison might be from
Pennsylvania but she is a Midwestern girl now and her blog is just beautiful,
full of English Country charm. If you don't know her go and check her out.
She is really lovely and you will see why I like her so much!
I am suppose to answer 7 questions about myself, so if you want to know more
you can here and then pass the baton on to 7 other blogs I enjoy.
So here I go...
Have a great week! I will work on a BOHO Market post this week with lots of pictures!
