WILD ROSEHIPS MARMALADE.

WILD ROSEHIPS MARMALADE. WILD ROSEHIPS from ”Rosa rugosa” are filled with vitamin C and vitamin A. Grow wildly on bushes at seaside along our beaches and coastline. My recipe gives approx. 1,5 liter marmalade. Prepare jars of glass and caps for processing. Each jar is 0,5 liter, so you need 6 jars. You can preserve raw Rosehips in freezer. Some think it’s easier to remove the seeds. I just prepare and use Rosehips right after picking. I LOVE wild Rosehips marmelade and make it each summer. A taste of summer in a marmalade. Enjoy!INGREDIENTS: 1,5 kg fresh WILD ROSEHIPS (prepared rosehips 750 grams to 1 kg), ½ lliter water, Juice from 2-3 lemons, 375 g – 500 g sugar, 2-3 teaspoon fruit pectin ( Rød Melatin, Marmeladejævning).HOW TO DO: Cut of flower and stem. Cut rosehips in two. Remove seeds. Rinse with cold water all the rosehips. Mesure. Chop rosehips. In heavy saucepot mix Rosehips with water and lemonjuice. Over high heat, heat mixture to boiling, stirring. Boil, stirring. With spoon, skim off foam and seeds. Boiling approx. 15 minutes, stirring. With potato masher thoroughly crush rosehips. Keep mixture simmering. In a small pot mix 1/3 of the sugar with fruit pectin (Marmelade-jævning). Mix most of the sugar (2/3 without the fruit pectin) with Rosehips mixture in the saucepot, so it’s boiling/simmering the last 10 minutes of boiling. Mix rest of sugar (1/3 of sugar mixed with pectin) with rosehips mixture in saucepot. Keep simmering, stirring for 2 minutes. Immediately laddle rosehips mixture into jars. Close jars. Store in refrigerator. Serv: WILD ROSEHIPS MARMALADE – orange, summer in a marmalade and rich on Vitamin C. Bon appetit !
