This mildly sweet, perfumy rose and cardamom syrup is the perfect way to add a splash of floral sweetness to your drinks and desserts. The syrup is easy to make. It has countless uses and I am sharing three easy effortless ways to use it.
The store-bought rose syrup mostly has an overpowering flavor and I am not the one who can take those strong aromas. While making the syrup at home, I can take completely control. I can create it the way I like it, mild and not overly sweet. I have used dried rose petals only because I had a packet lying around to be used. But, the next batch will definitely be with the fresh ones from the garden.
Rose Cardamom Syrup And Three Easy Ways To Use It
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 cup dried rose petals
¼ cup green cardamoms
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Pour water and sugar in a heavy bottom pan. Lightly pound the petals and cardamoms before adding it to the pan. Bring it to a boil and then, bring down the heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the lemon juice, give it a stir and switch off the gas.
Strain the syrup through a fine sieve layered with muslin cloth. Let it cool completely and then, store it in a glass jar. You could keep it in the refrigerator for a month.
