Take Your Garden Into The Kitchen

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC),


I'd like to take the garden into the kitchen today!

The fruits of the rose (better known as rose hips) have a slightly floral taste and are rich in vitamin C. They can be eaten raw, but since they are quite sour, they're usually made into jam or jelly.

For an easy jam, heat 2 cups of rose hips and 2 cups of water. Simmer, stirring, until the fruit is soft, then put it through a food mill. Measure the pulp and add 1 cup of sugar to each cup of fruit. Simmer until a jam consistency is reached, and store in sealed sterilized jars.

Now, if you're like me and would just love the taste of your garden (and the health benefits) without all the prep time simply click here:


I love this jam, because even though developing roses is a time-consuming effort in my garden plan (weekenders hate those two words "time consuming")---eating this lovely fruit in the morning makes me smile! Give it a try and see if you agree.
