Rose hip tea

Rose hip tea

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.

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.
