  • Dried rose hips


For each cup of tea, pour boiling water over a teaspoon of dried rose hips. To dry the hard, fresh rose hips, clean and strip of stems and ends and dry on a pan at a very low temperature (110-130° F) with the oven door open, for 6-8 hours (until the berries yield to the pressure of a finger). Grind coarsely and store in an airtight container.
