Honey is valued in Africa as food, medicine and as an important economic activity. Since honey is of different flavors and compositions, however, such replacements may result in changes of flavor, consistency, and the quantities of honey.
Across the African continent, there are many ways of preparing African Rose Honey Syrup. Honey can replace sugar in almost any drink recipe but is most popular in flavoring teas.
Lake Naivasha Rose Water Honey Syrup Recipe
¼ Cup Light Colored Honey
Petals from Two Sweet Smelling Roses
4 Cups Water
In a large pot simmer water and rose petals on medium-low 15 minutes, remove from heat let sit for 2-24 hours. The longer the mixture sits the stronger the infusion of roses. Filter out rose petals and mix the rose water with honey until mixture is the consistency of syrup.
