This recipe comes from my mother-in-law, Myrtress Harrington, who enjoyed the pretty golden spread over pancakes, French toast and breakfast cereal when she was a girl.—Myrtress Harrington, Steuben, Maine
Wash clover and rose petals throughly in cool running water; drain well. Pat dry. Place in a large metal bowl; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring until a candy thermometer reads 220°; remove from the heat. Pour over clover and rose petals; let stand for 45 minutes.
Pour through a double thickness of cheesecloth; discard clover and rose petals. Pour honey into jars; store in the refrigerator.
