My mother's rose bush with beautiful orange-red hips. What to do with them? Make herbal tea? Marmalade? When I was young I used to have rose hip soup with oatmeal in it for supper. And once, I was a very naughty girl, rubbing the inside of the rose hip inside my little brother's clothes making him itch so bad.. Forget the herbal tea, I know what I'll be doing with these rose hips!!
