Would you like to try out this simple recipe for making rose drops?

“””To a pound of sugar an ounce of red rose petals well beaten up, and then wet with as much juice of lemons as will make it into a stiff paste; set it on a slow fire in a silver porringer, and stir well, and when it is scalding hot quite through, take it off and drop in small portions on a paper: set them near a fire, the next day they will come off.”
