Easy Rose Water

Combine 1/4 cup dried rose petals with 1/5 cup distilled water in a small-medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the petals are nearly colorless. Remove from heat.Put a funnel over a jar (if storing, use a dark-colored glass jar with a lit/cap), and place cheesecloth or filter (I use a No. 4 coffee filter). Pour the rosewater over the filter to separate out the rose petals.
