About this recipe: This recipe for rose hip syrup has passed down through generations in our family and I believe was created by the cook in our old family estate many generations ago. The best time to pick rose hips is after the first frost, which will help to sweeten them slightly. They should still have a lovely deep red colour.
Some consider it bad luck to pick all of the rose hips off from one bush and that it is good luck to leave a few for the birds to feast on.
