When our wild roses bloom, they come out - the rose hips. Not only are they beautiful to look at, they also taste really good. Prepared as jam, for example.
Those who have a high harvest of certain fruits usually cook jam from them. It is made quickly and you have some of your delicious fruit for a long time. With rosehips, it looks a little different. The preparation is not as easy and quick as with strawberries & Co. But just because of the taste you should do the work.
I postponed my work for several years, but when I recently tried fresh rosehip jam with a friend, I knew: I want it too. I followed the recipe from this video. It's really not easy, but it's worth it. If you don't want to use the rose hips only for decoration, you should definitely try the delicious spread.
Did you know?
Rose hip's second name could also be vitamin bomb. Rose hips contain a lot of vitamin C. Only sea buckthorn contains more. For every 100 g there can be a good 1500 mg of vitamin C. For certain species and their degree of maturity, the number can even increase to 5000 mg per 100 g. Crazy, right?
By the way: Rosehip tea can work wonders especially in the colder season. Regular consumption can prevent colds or drive them away.
