Rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant that ripen in autumn after the flower has been pollinated. They are often used in sweet jams and jellies, but also in beverages like teas and wine. Roses are related to apples and crabapples, and their fruits have a unique flavor akin to tart apples or plums, so rose hips can be used in any recipe that has dried fruit as an ingredient. They are also known for their unusually high level of vitamin C as well as their high amount of lycopene, an important antioxidant in the human diet, and therefore have historically been used as a natural remedy and natural vitamin C integrator. These rose hips are ready to use, as the inedible parts have already been removed. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
