Hip for Roses

October 15, 2017

 

 

 

Recently, while out and about for the day, I spent part of the afternoon harvesting rose hips – a first for me.  The day was cool but sunny and I enjoyed my walk through the wooded area, plucking the fruit from the thorny remains of the wild roses that grow all over around here.

 

The rose hip is the fruit of rose plants, actually a berry of sorts. It is typically red to orange and forms after the plant flowers in spring or early summer, and ripens in late summer through autumn.  The best time to harvest, so my research has told me, is after the first frost – which we have already had here on the Peninsula.

 

I plan to try my hand at making an Alaska favorite – rose hip jelly / jam.  I’d also like to dry some and make a blend for tea.  As a bonus, rose hips are particularly high in vitamin C, one of the richest plant sources available in fact.

 

Check back here for updates on the “fruits” of my labor!
