2 1/2  cups white clover flowers  (No green parts)
1 cup red clover flowers    (No green parts)
Petals of four wild roses
10 cups sugar
1 teas.  alum
3 cup water

Directions:
1. 
Wash blossoms and drain well.
2. Bring all ingredients except alum to a boil and stir slowly.
3. Add alum and stir 60 times (no more, no less). Turn heat off
Allow to streep for 3 hours.
4. Strain mixture through cheesecloth, reheat to boil and pour into clean sterilized 6 oz containers.


Note: If you use green parts your recipe will taste grassy.
