Ninteenth Century Rose Oil

Rosolio dell'Ottocento

Typical peasant recipe from the countryside around Bologna, near San Giovanni in Persiceto. It was prepared to be served for important occasions, for example, the arrival of an important guest.

Ingredients: 50 g of scented roses, 1 liter of 95° alcohol, 500 g of cane sugar, 80 cl of water, cinnamon, 3 cloves, 1 stick of vanilla.

Preparation: pick, if possible during the hottest hours of the day, the rose petals (it would be best if they are from an antique rose). Clean the petals very well, without washing them. Submerge them in the alcohol, in a jar, together with the ground up vanilla, a pinch of cinnamon, and the cloves. After 15-20 days, carefully strain the mixture. In another pan, melt the sugar in hot water and when the liquid is cold, add it to the liquor. Before serving it, let it sit for at least 30 days.
