Take Damask Roses, and clip of the white of them, for every pint of water take six ounces of them, boil your water first, and scum it, then let them stand twelve hours, wringing out the Toses, and putting in new eight times, then wringing out the last, put in the juice of four ounces of Roses only, and so make it up as before.
