“I just picked my 2nd batch of rosehips and have posted this recipe here so I can find it next year! It's based on a recipe from This is gorgeous mixed with water for a drink, or as a sauce over ice-cream. You can bottle/can it, or turn it into ice-cubes and store in the freezer. Time shown doesn't include 'dripping' time!”
1hr 10mins
3 5/8 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs rose hips (just under 1kg)
  • 1 lb sugar (454g)


  1. Crush the rosehips (I use a blender) and put into 3 UK pints (or 7.25 cups) of boiling water.
  2. Bring back to boil and then remove from the heat and let it stand for 10 minutes
  3. Strain through a jelly bag and when the dripping stops, return the 'mash' with another 1½ UK pints (or 3.6 cups) of boiling water.
  4. Re-boil and allow to stand as before, strain. Pour both extracts into a clean pan and boil until the liquid measures 1½ pints (3.6 cups).
  5. Add 1lb sugar.
  6. Stir over gentle heat until sugar dissolves, and then boil for 5 minutes.
  7. Pour into hot bottles, seal.
