Rose Hips

Posted on September 25 2017

Have you seen these little things before? Rose hips are the fruit of rose bushes. When they are fresh, they are known as one of the best sources of vitamin C, having about 50 times as much vitamin C as an orange. When they are dry, they are highly medicinal and are used to treat and prevent colds, flu, and vitamin C deficiencies. Due to its high content of Vitamin A, it can help regenerate skin cells, healing wounds and scars. Moreover, rose hips are good for boosting your immune system, digestion, blood circulation, and controlling diabetes. You can use rose hips to make jellies, sauces, syrups, seasoning, wine, and of course, tea. Despite their name, they do not taste like roses. They are more tangy than flowery or fruity. Today, rose hips are popular in mixology and are used as a great flavor enhancer.
