- A few days ago I harvested the rosehips from the wild rose in the front
yard. I was amazed at how many one bush can produce (about two cups
I split each hip with a knife and scraped out the seeds. They're now by
the fireplace drying, and looking for all the world like dried cherries.
Does anyone know what rose hips were used for in period? Were they used
as a food or a medicine?
Here is a picture of the rosehips before I harvested them:
