    Aroostook's Note:

    My neighbor, Dot Warman, ( she's 101 now) used to make this and give it out for gifts. This is a fun summer recipe to make with kids. You won't believe it's not the real thing! =) PS Just make sure the clover and roses have no spray or other chemicals on them.

      Excellent recipe - thank you so much! I had no idea you could make "honey" this way. It's very close to the real thing, and I love that I can customize it to change the flavors a bit. The first time, I made it with white clover, white and red roses, honeysuckle, and a few raspberries tossed in for a hint of fruity flavor. The second time, I made it as stated. Wonderful both times! I made a half recipe both times because this makes quite a bit! Oh, and I found that adding a tablespoon or two of corn syrup really helps to prevent crystallization. BTW, you must try this in lemonade (substitute for the sugar). It gives it a wonderful floral hint to it. Mmmmm . . .

      This is a very unique recipe and quite easy. My kids had fun picking the clover and watching when it was poured into jars. I used the petals of just one wild rose because that's all I could find and was not about to run to a flower shop. This is real honey! Thank you Aroostook and Dot. We will be making this every year.
