ROSEHIPS

Leave a comment

rosehipsBeautiful rosehips (Rosa canina) can still be found on the bare branches of the dog rose.  They are really useful at this time of year as they contain a high vitamin and mineral content (more Vitamin C than in oranges!), as well as being antioxidant and anti-viral.  Beware though of their thorns and also if you are using fresh hips – you need to split each hip and scrape out the irritating hairs.  Unless of course, you want to use them as ‘itching powder’ ;p
