    Sherrie-pie's Note:

    In South Africa, I used to give my babies Rosy Cheer - a drink made from rosehips. It's full of vitamin C. To my surprise, no one in the UK had ever heard of it, although it apparently was a staple during the war years. I downloaded this recipe for my files from Irish secrets. I haven't got around to collecting the rosehips yet, but if this is the same, it gets diluted with water. As I haven't made it, the quantities, preparation time and cooking time are all guesses.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    litres

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove stalks and chop rosehips.
    2. 2
      While you're doing this, bring 2 litres of water to the boil and add the rosehips. Bring back to the boil, remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Ladle rosehips and liquid into a scalded jelly bag and allow the bulk of the juice to drip through.
    4. 4
      Return the pulp to the saucepan and add the remaining litre of of water. Re-boil, infuse again for 10 minutes and strain as before.
    5. 5
      Pour the juice into a clean saucepan and simmer until it measures about 1 litre.
    6. 6
      Add the sugar and stir to dissolve, then boil for 5 minutes. Pour the syrup, while still hot, into warm clean bottles within 25 cm of the tops.
    7. 7
      Push in new corks (previously boiled for 15 minutes) not too tightly and tie with string.
    8. 8
      Place the bottles in the deepest saucepan you have, either on a false bottom or on corrugated paper or newspaper and fill with cold water to the level of the syrup. Bring slowly to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes to sterilize, then remove from the pan.
    9. 9
      Remove the string and press the corks firmly inches Dry the bottles and when corks are dry, dip in melted paraffin wax to keep them air tight.
