Eat Your Rosehips (They're Good for You!)

Updated on May 30, 2016

Hip hip hooray for rosehips!

Rosehips are not only edible. They're also good for you. In fact, a single rosehip contains more Vitamin C than an orange, according to National Geographic's Edible!

Although you probably won't want to eat rosehips straight from the bush, you can enjoy the flavor, aroma and health benefits of organic rosehips in a variety of concoctions, from rosehip tea to rosehip syrup. You can also get your daily dose of vitamin C by taking rosehip supplements.

What is a rosehip?

The rosehips used in cooking are formed from the spent blossoms of the dog rose bush (Rosa canina). Because Rosa canina grows wild, you can forage for rosehips in autumn.

If you grow dog roses in your garden, you probably spend time throughout the summer deadheading them, that is, removing their spent blooms. After all, you want them to flower--and keep on flowering. In late summer, however, you should limit your snipping to the few roses that you pick for arrangements so that your bushes don't produce lots of new growth that will be killed in the upcoming cold weather.

When you cease to deadhead, your Rosa canina's petals will eventually fall away, and the spent blooms will form rosehips--small berries that contain as many as 150 seeds. In addition to vitamin C, these hips contains vanillin as well as sugars, making them delectable additions to jams, jellies, syrups and other sweet treats.


When should rose hips be harvested?

For the sweetest flavor, you should gather ye rose hips while ye may (Sorry, Herrick!) in the fall, preferably after the first hard frost.

Don't, however, wait until the hips are dried up in order to harvest them. That's when they're better food for birds than people. Rather, select rose hips that have turned a rich deep red color. That's when they're at their best--slightly sweet, very tart and full of good nutrition.

HOW CAN ROSEHIPS BE USED?

Throughout the ages, gardeners and cooks have used rosehips in a variety of delicious recipes. If you have access to organic, pesticide-free rose hips, you too might enjoy making food and drinks from rosehips.

ROSEHIP TEA FOR FOUR

Sip a cup of rosehips.

Rosehip tea has a sweet, tangy flavor, and like everything thing else rosehip, it's packed with vitamin C. Although rosehip tea may be purchased, if your Rosa canina bushes are pesticide-free, you can easily make your own fresh rosehip tea. The following is a basic recipe for fresh rosehip tea.

Ingredients

5 c. boiling water

4 Tbsp. fresh rosehips, chopped

Directions

Bring 5 c. water to boil. Meanwhile, collect about 1 cup pesticide-free rosehips. Wash them carefully, removing any debris. Then chop them until you have enough to fill four tablespoons--one tablespoon per cup of boiling water.

Rinse the teapot with boiling water in order to warm it. Add the rosehips, and then pour 4 c. of boiling water into the pot. Allow to steep 3 to 5 minutes.

For rosehip tea with a high vitamin C content, fellow hubber Plinka recommends soaking the hips in lukewarm water for several days rather than simply pouring hot water over them.

Want additional tea recipes made from fresh garden ingredients? Check out "Soothing Teas from the Garden."


ROSEHIP SYRUP

Rosehip syrup is luscious on biscuits, ice cream and pancakes. You could also pour it over slices of Rose Scented Cake. (See link to recipe below.)

Rosehip syrup can also be added to jams and jellies, and it's surprisingly easy to make.

For step-by-step directions, go to this recipe from The Guardian's Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. To make rosehip syrup, all you'll need are three ingredients: rosehips, water and sugar.


You'll need pretty rose petals for your Rose-Scented Cake. Make sure they're organic!

ROSE-SCENTED CAKE

To make a rose-scented cake from recipe provided by National Public Radio's Victoria C. Rowan, you'll need organic rose water and two organic roses--in addition to other "cake-making stuff" like butter, sugar, eggs and flour.

For the full recipe, follow this link. Serve your rose-scented cake with ice cream and drizzle it with rosehip syrup!

        What an interesting article. I'm glad I found this, for I had no idea that it was a certain specific rose, and not just any rose hip from the garden rosebushes that could be used.

        Voted up, interesting and useful.

        awesome hub! we have wild roses growing here, incredivly thick. their rosehips get pretty huge to. i have been trying to domesticate a wild rose for some time. i have learned the hard way you can't just dig them up and transplant them...they grow on runner roots and if you chop the root that connects it to the rest of its "family" it dies. so i harvested some rosehips this fall and stuck them in the freezer in the hopes of starting my own wild roses from it.

        @ PixelsToLife--Dog roses are hardy, growing in Zones 3-8. That's a wide range! I've never seen them in nursery pots either. You can start them from seeds. They're a little more expensive than most seeds, but ... you get a perennial! I'm trying to add them to an Amazon capsule, but can't get it to work. However, check out TreeHelp Ltd.'s site, which has them for $6. Good luck!

        @Ben--OMG! I could never eat them like that. What about that little hair in the middle? I can't think of any other plant that looks quite like them, but I'm no expert. The leaves look like rose leaves, and the hips are so big that you wouldn't confuse them with a multifloral, which also grows wild and is really prickly. Still, better be careful. And now I'm checking out your hubs! You sound like the kind of adventurous soul I like!

        I'm glad this made Hub of the Day. I was going to pluck some rosehips today before seeing you hub. I just watched an episode of "Hot on the Trail" (it airs on Veria) and the host was on the hunt for wild rosehips. She did warn about commercially grown or bred roses not being a good source for rosehips. Thanks for consolidating all this information for us.

        @DzyMsLizzy--They're edible, but they might not taste very good. Most hips are really just ornamental--and good food for birds. If you have a Rosa rugosa (beach rose), however, their hips are tasty--and they're big. If you like "old-fashioned" plants, you might want to get a rugosa. They're definitely "your grandmother's" rosebush--and they're really, really prickly. Thanks so much for commenting! Take care, Jill

        Hello--Congratulations onf Hub of the Day!

        This is very interesting, indeed. I've long known about the vitamin C aspect of rose hips, but never tried harvesting my own.

        We don't have "dog roses," only ordinary everyday roses, species unknown. Are the hips from these safe as well, and with the same benefits? I currently have a bumper crop of hips...although, on our roses, they never become red...they stay green, and go to a kind of rusty color just before they fall off.

        Voted up, useful and interesting.

        No, they're not toxic--unless they've been chemically treated. It's just that some roses produce bigger, healthier hips. Dog rose hips are large, and they're particularly high in vitamin C. Also, although I'm not one of them, every serious hybrid tea rose grower that I know uses some sort of fungicide or pesticide on her roses. Those hips I would not eat.

        My favorite topic: plants and their health benefits. :-) This is a very thorough hub! Congratulations! I have a note if you don't mind: to get a tea with high vitamin C content, you should soak rose hips in lukewarm water (so in a warm place) for several days instead of pouring boiling water over them and wait for only couple of minutes. Voted up and shared!

        great hub, dirtfarmer. my auntie used to make rose-hip syrup for us, which we watered down and used as a cordial - it makes a lovely refreshing, vitamin-rich drink for children
