Rose hips ideas wanted




We went for rose hips, Domik pulled out his usual stuff, where are the cars, where are the streets and I would not rather go there, meaning the wood. I liked picking rose hips although I do not really know what to do with them other than tea. Any idea? I enjoyed my half an hour country life gathering berries and imagining something nice I would make out of them while Domik started to explore the meadow behind me. He picked three flowers, one for his grandpa, one for grandma, one for me.

I have seen recipes for rosehip jelly. I hope to try that but am waiting until after the first frost or two to collect the rosehips...

love rosehip jelly, you can add some lemon zeste together with the sugar after you have cooked and strained the pulp.
rozehips get sweeter after the first frost, that's a good excuse to go back to that nice place; tell Domik :-)
love your photos;

I hope Dominik found some good sides to your trip into the woods in the end. Would it help if he brought a toy car with him? Rose hip jam is delicious, creamy, not too sweet, unusual, I've had it lots of times, but never made it.

Hmmm, I love rosehip jelly but I wouldn't be able to prepare it myself !
