Post Re: Anyone used their wild rose hips for cooking?
Ok so I have just made the syrup and its incredible - certainly nice tasting medicine, shouldn't be too hard to have a tspn of that a day for colds and arthritis, considering I'm probably up to 5 already as are the 2 and 4 yr old!!
Here are some photos of the process. I made it with 1 kg of rosehips which did not even scrape the surface of one rose as they are 8ft high and 6ft+ wide! Would like to make in greater quantities at one time but my sieve could only take the pulp of 1kg anyway so will just have to keep making batches. And you can freeze the hips until use. Very time consuming removing stems though :x

Just an update that I have now made rosehip jelly twice now - gosh it is divine - can see how it goes with meat as it is not sickly sweet! When I made the syrup I can see now that the rosehips were too hard on the bush compared to now they are very soft. No effect on taste - just don't need to cook them so long and the advantage now is they come off the bush without their stems!
