Homemade Rose Petal Jam


I am so happy to share my Rose Petal Jam recipe with you today! The roses have started to bloom and one way to make the flowers last longer is to cut them so that new ones can appear. What to do with all the cut flowers though? Well, you could make this rose petal jam for starters!

To make this jam couldn’t be easier. Start by bringing petals and water to a gentle simmer before adding sugar. Once the sugar dissolves, add lemon juice and observe the beautiful color that emerges. Simmer for 20 minutes before transferring to jars. This keeps for 2 months in the refrigerator. It will have a thick syrup-like consistency when it sets.

To make Rose Petal Jam, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Homemade Rose Petal Jam

Steps to make Homemade Rose Petal Jam


Bring petals and water to a simmer


Bring 1½ cups filtered water and 2 ounces of rose petals to a simmer in a saucepan over medium high heat for 2 minutes.


Add sugar


Add 1¾ cups of the sugar to the simmering mixture. Stir to dissolve the sugar crystals.


Add lemon juice and simmer


Add 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and simmer for about 10 minutes.


Add sugar and pectin


Mix the remaining ¼ cup of sugar with 1 teaspoon of fruit pectin in a bowl. Incorporate with the jam while stirring to insure the pectin gets incorporated without clumping.




Continue to simmer the jam for about 20 minutes until it resembles a silky syrup with petals floating in it.


Ladle the jam into sterilized jars


Spoon the jam into 3 (6 oz) jars using a ladle.



This jam tastes great on freshly baked bread or scones.

In reply to Rachel Fauteux:

Dear Rachel Fauteux, thank you for the question. Unfortunately, our chef Dasha has not ever used the Malus Sylvestris Forest Apple for the pectin part. You can even skip this ingredient if you want. And the jam will turn out just as flavorful and delicious without it.

Rachel Fauteux

Dear Rose Petal Jam homemaker, I am curious to know, couldn't I make the Malus Sylvestris "Forest Apple" for the pectin part of the rose petal jam recipe. Instead, of using the pectin use malus sylvestris yellowish and green with a bit of red spurt from the crab apple. Or, is it easier just to use pectin without the additional gardening work. Rachel F. mrs.rachel.f@gmail.com please refer to my email in responds to your reply. Thank You.

Azalea Labhart

Great and simple recipe takes a while to make but worth it just for the simple taste of roses in your mouth.

Angie Vanbecelaere

Is it okay to use any colored roses or is there a specific kind you need?

Lillie Mangabat

Emelia Cleghorn

Spread this inside a warm crossiant with a side of strawberry iced tea...mmm perfection.

Jaelynn Aldapa

2 cups of sugar was just too much in my head so i went for 1 cup and it was a bit bitter.. my own fault though, nonethless the recipe was great and the rose petal jam tasted good slapped on to some plain sugar cookies.

Aniya Marquina

Lemon juice made mine a bit zesty but i'm for it!! haha.

Aiyanna Nau

Ok so mine turned out extremely watery with some petals inside, i dont get it.


Amazing recipe! Thank you for sharing!
