Now we get to play a game of condensation.
In a heavy, deep stock pot, place a ramekin filled half way with water into the center. The water weighs the ramekin down.
Place rose petals around the ramekin then fill with water until it reaches half way up the ramekin. Place another ramekin or shallow soup bowl on top of the first ramekin.
Bring the water and rose petals to a boil.
Reduce heat to simmer.
Place a stainless steel bowl over the opening of the stock pot. The bowl must be large enough to seal the pot, yet shallow enough to not touch the top ramekin or bowl.
Fill the stainless steal bowl with ice.
As the roses simmer in the water, the steam will rise and create condensation that will drip back down into the mixture. Replace ice as needed.
Simmer for 3 hours.
