MOIST ROSE POTPOURRI:
Making moist potpourri is a method, that was used many
years ago. It does not look as pretty as dry potpouuri does
but the fragance is said to last much longer, some recipes
say as long as 50 years. I have not been able to find to many recipes using this method.
Would really appreciate if someone has a recipe or two that they would like to share, so far I have only been able to find about 6 recipes.
Moist Rose Potpourri
1.Begin making potpourri in the early summer and continue to add rose petals
and leaves throughout the growing season.
2.In a glass jar or crock,layer; a sprinkling of cinnamon; a sprinkling of
cloves; and 1/4-inch salt, rose petals, and rose leaves in that order. When
finished making layers. Cover tightly. Repeat making layers throughout summer,
pressing down mixture occasionally and keeping tightly covered.
3.At the end of the growing season, add a few drops of rose oil and mix well
Press down and cover for at least four weeks.
4.Place aged potpourri in covered container as desired. To enjoy aroma, lift
lid for short time, then replace. This potpourri will last for year's and may be
added to from each year's rose garden and refreshed with rose oil.
