Wild Rose

  • In the fall the rose flowers shed their pedals and a round or oval shaped seed pod is left, called a rose hip.
  • Once picked and dried the rose hips can be used in tea, jams, jellies, and more. To use them in jams and jellies dry the rose hips for a couple of weeks until dark and wrinkled, peel off the hard outer shell and mash the contents of the rose hip.
  • Rose hips can be placed into boiling water to make tea. Even the rose pedals can be used.
  • Wild rose hips are high in vitamin C.
