Rosehips are the fruit of the rose plant. They mature & ripen in late summer, early fall and then they can be harvested and seeded. Rosehips can be eaten fresh or dried, made into a tea, jam, syrup or wine. They have a delicious tart flavor. All parts of the rose, but particularly the rosehips are packed with Vitamin C and Bioflavanoids, in a very absorbable form. They also contain varying amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and B-Vitamins. I love this recipe. It is simple, delicious, nutritious and kids love it! It is great to make when your kids need an extra boost of Vitamin C.
3/4 cup Dried, Seeded Rosehips
Real Fruit Juice (I like to use a berry mix)
Place the dried rosehips in a 1/2 pint mason jar.
