Kitchen Dictionary: rose water

Rose Water is a clear liquid, distilled from fresh rose petals. It is a flavoring that can be subtle when used lightly or soapy when added with a heavy hand. To make rose water: Collect the petals from 3-4 full rose heads that have not been treated with pesticides. Place in a saucepan with 1 pint of water. Heat gently until the petals are transparent, do not boil. Cool mixture, strain, pressing liquid out of petals. Refrigerate up to one week.
