I just got the first apricots of the season at my farmers market and want to make jam. My recipe calls for saffron (got that) and two (2) drops of rose water (don't have). I don't need rose water enough to justify buying a bottle of it, particularly when I only need two drops at the moment. But I have plenty of fragrant roses blooming right now, so is there something I can do with those to make something approximating rose water? Has to be fast, as the apricots won't hold! Thanks.
