Why I Love This Recipe

This fruit & rose hip jam is so good & good for you.Fully ripe rose hips are gathered after the first frost. The frost helps sweeten the flavor. Roses are a member of the apple family. Ever seen a rose hip? That's that big seed pod that forms on rose canes after it blossoms. Some roses, especially Rugosa roses, form rose hips that are as big as crab apples -- about the size of a quarter! And, in the fall they turn brilliant colors of red and orange, and sometimes even purple


Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups fully ripe rose hips
1 orange
1 lemon
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups sugar


Directions

Remove the stiff hairs from calyx end of rose hips, split open and scrape out the seeds.


Wash hips and measure 1 1/2 cups.


Cut peel from orange and lemon in thin slivers.


Add to the water and boil for five minutes.


Add sugar and stir until dissolved.


Add the juice from the orange and lemon and the rose hips.


Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.


Uncover and cook until hips are clear and transparent and syrup is thick.


Pour into hot sterilized jars; seal.


Makes about two 1/2 pint jars.
