Wild Roses Are Pretty Hip

29 Nov


Going to add a few photos to my wild fruit page so I thought it would be a good time for a short post as well.


Wild Rose hips are one of the most Vita rich foods we have on this planet and we have quite a few varieties growing wild right here in the Maritime provinces.


Most of our native roses have rather small hips which turns out to be not a bad thing as you can eat the whole hip with seeds included which gives you plenty of Vit C and Vit E and much more in this healing food. Word of caution though, some may find the seeds hard on their teeth.


If you do not want to eat them raw there are plenty of recipes, teas, soups, jellies etc available on the net.


I should also mention our native wild roses are a healthy food you can gather the entire Fall season and even well into the winter. Even if you don’t want to eat them, I hope you enjoyed seeing them and will take note of their brightness this Fall and Winter on your travels. ciao
