So. Those are the rose hips from the other day. Most ended up in my freezer with the hops from the same Buffalo backyard, waiting until I feel like making jam with them, but I used a few to make tea first.
Rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant. They’re kind of rose-tasting, if you can imagine that, and when steeped the tea is high in vitamin C. It’s tasty too; it would be really good chilled.
Rose hip tea
Steep 5 or so rose hips in boiling water for ten minutes. Serve in favorite mug, the exact cultural significance of which you are sadly ignorant.
