I was making a batch of this up. My hubby just got a 10% pay cut. We were lucky, most folks lost 20-40% of their pay. Still, it is stressful, and he will not take Western Medicine. So I treat his blood pressure and stress with naturalpathy.
This is an ayurvedic treatment for stress, and it helps the stress that contributes to high bp in particular.
Rose Petal Jam
1 cup fresh rose petals (must never have been sprayed with any chemicals) 3/4 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
2 1/2 cups sugar,
1 package pectin (ie. Sure Jell)
3/4 cup water
Puree rose petals, 3/4 cup water and lemon juice in blender until smooth. Slowly add sugar. Blend till all sugar has dissolved; (leave in blender) Stir 1 package pectin into 3/4 cup water, bring to a boil, and boil hard for 1 minute. Pour mixture into blender with rose petal mixture until well blended. Do this very quickly - it sets up FAST!! Pour into clean small jars. Let set for 6 hours, till firm. Will keep one month in refrigerator. Freezes well.
