Hi, I tasted Spiced Tomato Preserves for the first time last summer. A cousin of mine brought me a variety of her home canned goodies, I was recovering from surgery. I just thought it was fantastic and what I found unbelievable is that I never knew it existed. We have been family and friends all of our lives. What she found unbelievable is that I didn't know about it, she said her Mom made tons of it over the years and that she knew it as a staple since she was a child. Food was served at both of our homes as the families visited. Missnuggy

MY PERSONAL MESSAGE TO EVERYONE IS TO LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE AND DON'T FORGET TO DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU.

You are welcome Jwourms.
And thank you other team members for seeing the exciting potential in this familiar but uncommon foods. I like hearing great taste and batch successes coming from the gardens of the world.
Other unusual flavors I have tried and loved were cactus pear jelly and tomato jelly.

Well, as I don't live in the states I used a different pectin from the one suggested in the recipe....

SO... - turned out more like syrup than jelly. Tastes pretty good and even though I used green coloured rose hips the final product is still a pretty pink colour.

I think I'll bottle it as rose hip syrup instead..

GREAT link!
Thank you.
My rose hips don't look nearly so red and pretty but I think I'll give it a try anyway. Perhaps I was a little early we are only still in July.
But the pruning has already been done.

Rose water - I like moroccan cuisine and I've seen rose water as an ingredient. I have no idea how to make it though and while people talked about it on the link there was no specific recipe.

Thanks again. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Roses are the base for a natural Rosary bead chain the catholic preying tool. A sweaty palm heats up the beads and releases sweet rose scent. The best beads are also blessed by the Pope. Rose hips are high in vitamin C; but the C is also lost in high heat processing of canning. Remember to remove the hairs and keep the hips. Prepare for some skin burns as a regular canner would guard against touching the hot places people out of practice may unintentionally burn while working with high temperatures of jars, waters, lids, sugars and steam.
Here is a suggested recipe

I have rugosa roses in my yard, but they don't produce hips (maybe some kind of wierd hybrid?). I've been wanting to try this myself ...

Anyone ever make rose hip jam or perhaps a body scrub with rose hips?

I tackled the old fashioned roses this morning and look like I've been wrestling with cats.
