Rose hips make for a unique flavor - apples, almonds and rose petals. Use this light syrup to make a refreshing soda or to mix unforgettable cocktails.
This spring I picked wild rose petals & leaves to dry for tea & wanted to wait until later in the year to finish the tea with some of the rose hips. So this fall I gathered up a few colanders of rose hips & put them to use in a few different ways.
Gather rosehips for free and make them into syrup for a delicious cordial... or itching powder!
