Never heard of this, but I have made rose hip jam and its really good. It is also very high in vitamin C.

Will have to look into this further.

Can use any as long as they haven't been chemically treated in any way.

Ok, so I went out and checked for roses i could use. I picked great heads off of my pink and red bushes brought em inside and began happily plucking petals off the flowers. I plunked thm into a strainer and had a full strainer. I put the strainer under the water with all the confidence of a seasoned chef (yeah right, i am good if i don't burn mac and cheese). I glance down and black creatures were spilling over the edges of the strainer, fleeing for their lives...and heading straight for the nearest bridge to dry land...MY HAND!! i dropped the strainer and reached for the nearest thing..a sauce pot and began feverishly whacking the bugs with the trusty cooking pot. I believe i got most of em...but now i have no petals left. they were unfortunate bystanders in the all out erratication of the black pincher bugs and were smashed as well. :sigh: I hate bugs.


Maybe I can find some roses at the farmers market.
