Wild Alaska Roses and Rose Petal Jelly

The link above will take you to a pdf document from the UAF Cooperative Extension that tells all about Wild Roses and recipes using Wild Roses. 

A friend of mine and I made Rose Petal Jelly a couple of weeks ago. The wild roses bloom for just a couple of weeks in June and if you miss them, well, they are gone. The jelly is just a beautiful color in the jars.
 My friend had the pretty blue seals and rings that Ball has out right now, such a great color combination.
The first food preservation of the season. Yummy!

Now to harvest those Rose Hips in the late summer/early fall for their vitamin c goodness.
