~ Rose Beads ~
1/2 pound of fresh Rose petals
1/4 pound of fine salt
1/2 once each
Pound all ingredients in a mortar or grind in a meat or grain grinder (if your petals are dry boil them in a small amount of water first) Shape into balls, slide a thick needle or toothpick through the centers for a hole. They will shrink and dry in a few days and continue to harden with age. When very hard they can be polished with vegetable oil.
