This rose water syrup is slightly sweet, high on flavor, and the perfect old-fashioned addition to both your cooking and natural herbal cabinet.
You can use granulated sugar, honey, or any sugar substitute you wish. However, the type of sugar you use may change the thickness of the syrup. Boiling the water and sugar can produce a thicker syrup over a sugar substitute like erythritol. Honey will need to be added after you infuse the rose hips to keep the heath properties of the honey. A combination of granulated sugar and honey will give you the most thick syrup, with the benefits of raw honey.
