Rose Hip Recipes and More: Rose Hip and Apple Compote
Try this delicious recipe for rose hip and apple compote

By Rachel Albert-Matesz | February/March 2000

Serves 6 to 8

This easy dish is always a hit at birthday, holiday, and dinner parties. For a special breakfast or brunch, serve the compote cold or hot over buckwheat pancakes or cornbread with butter, flax oil, or Fluffy Cashew Cream.

• 5 or 6 tart apples (use any variety except McIntosh)
• 1/2 cup cut-and-sifted rose hips, pits removed
• 1/3 cup unsulfured raisins
• 1/4 cup diced unsulfured dried peaches, optional
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 1/3 to 1/2 cup water
• Topping
• 1/2 cup walnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds, chopped coarsely and toasted, or 1 cup Fluffy Cashew Cream (recipe follows)

1) Wash, halve, and core the apples. Grate one apple and cut the rest into bite-size chunks. Layer the rose hips, raisins, optional peaches, and apples in a large nonreactive pot, cover, and bring to a full boil. Simmer over medium-low heat without stirring for 20 to 35 minutes or until the fruit is tender but not mushy. Stir gently. If the mixture is soupy, simmer, uncovered, until most of the liquid is gone.

2) Spoon the compote into individual dessert cups. Serve hot or at room temperature topped with nuts or Fluffy Cashew Cream. 

Rose Hip Recipes and More: Fluffy Cashew Cream

Makes 1 cup

This topping is equally good on sweet vegetables such as squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, and beets. Although the mixture will appear runny when you first mix it, it will thicken when chilled.

• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 1/2 cup boiling water
• 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew butter

Dissolve the salt in the boiling water. Stir in the cashew butter until smooth. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or until very thick. The cream may be stored in the refrigerator for 10 days.

Cashew Cream: The Basics
Cashew cream is incredibly easy to make. Raw cashews are soaked in water for as little as an hour, but preferably overnight. If you know that you want sweetened cashew cream, throw a Medjool date into the overnight soak too. The soaking water is discarded and the soaked cashews are blended with fresh water and a little salt.

The resulting cream should be silky-smooth, with a creamy consistency akin to yogurt, and can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.

The Best Way to Buy and Store Raw Cashews
Your cashew cream will taste best with good-quality raw cashews. Look for raw cashews in the bulk bins at your local health food store or order them online for the best price. Yes, raw cashews can be expensive, but a cup (about six ounces) will give you a week’s worth of cashew cream and is much less expensive than many of the store-bought vegan cheese and cream products.

Raw nuts actually last longer than their toasted counterparts, as their oils are still intact. When buying cashews in bulk (and saving grocery money, woot!) store the raw cashews in an airtight container in the freezer.

Fireweed Jelly

alethealymworth.wordpress.com
Fireweed (Willowherb, Blooming Sally) Latin name: Epilobium angustifolium. Family: Onagraceae – Evening Primrose Family. Fireweed is a beautiful plant that loves to grow just about anywhere it…

https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-1006/evening-primrose-oil

https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/mb/wapusk/decouvrir-discover/ne1/ne1_2013/ne1_2013_9

Fireweed has a long history of use as a traditional medicine and is known to have high concentrations of beta carotene, vitamin C and vitamin A. Prepared by an experienced person, the leaves of the plant have been used as a remedy for urinary tract disorders and general inflammation of the digestive tract and skin, while tea made from the whole plant has been used as a treatment for intestinal worms, asthma and whooping cough. Chewed roots, applied topically, are thought to draw the infection out of boils and abscesses. A word of caution: some plants may cause unpleasant or deadly side effects. Know your plants well before harvesting and using them.

Fireweed has also been used traditionally in a number of different, non-medicinal ways. Layers of fireweed can be made into a mat or work surface, referred to as “Old Timer’s Plywood,” and the fibrous stems can be used as twine. Fireweed can be used to make a delicious jelly. You will find many jelly recipes posted on the Internet. The young, tender shoots are very tasty in salads and can also be cooked as a pot vegetable and the flowers and buds make an eye-catching addition to any dish.

Yowbarb Note: Posting a screen shot of one type of jelly bag strainer, looks convenient.
Also posting a definition of a "scalded jelly bag"    https://www.lakeland.co.uk/14622/Lakeland-Jelly-Strainer

What is a "scalded" jelly bag?

Strain through a jelly bag
To achieve a clear jelly strain it through a jelly bag that has been scalded first in boiling water, scalding the bag will stop it from soaking up the juices as your jelly strains through. It is important to let the mixture strain through in its own time.

Chop rosehips in food processor until mashed up, then add to boiling water.
Bring water back to the boil, then remove from heat and allow to steep for 20 minutes.
Pour rosehips and liquid into a scalded jelly bag and allow the juice to drip through. Gently squeeze the jelly bag to extract as much liquid as possible. Be careful not to rip the bag.
Add rosehip pulp back to a saucepan containing 1 litre of water and bring back to the boil. Then remove from heat and allow the contents to steep for another 20 minutes before straining through the jelly bag as in Step 3.

Barb, the rosehips are truly a good source of natural vitamin C, so good idea.  For those who prefer to sweeten to their own tastes, maybe they could make it without the sugar, and process as directed.  Then each serving could be sweetened as desired, such as with honey or maple syrup, and that way the sweetener would not be boiled, especially if using raw honey,  plus could use less sweetener than recipe suggests.

This looks like a great way to put the invasive Rugosa rose species to good use!

Yes, from what I read it is a good tasting variety of Rosehips. :)

Hi ilinda, what led me in this direction, was reading how Vitamin C is so important to help prevent Ebola, then thinking well, how many people will run completely out of Vitamin C supplements.
So, the rosehips popped into my mind. :)

Because reliable sources of pure, organic vitamin C are hard to find now, they will be harder to find in the future, so we'd all be best to at least learn how to process rose hips, or at least gather some every summer and replace those year-olds the following year with a new crop, etc.  It will probably be easier to find rose hips than it will be to find a vitamin not made in China.  So, excellent idea.

I've probably blathered on about this before, but Pat Coleby author of Natural Goat Care, says in the book that vitamin C has actually reversed and cured rabies!  There are so many uses of this vitamin, one day one of us will probably start a topic just on Vitamin C.

ilinda, that is great data to have. Had not heard Vitamin C could cure rabies, wow.
Thinking people need to get serious about having rose plants ready to bug out with, seeds and some stored rosehips, as well...

And this just came in Small Beekeepers' Journal, July 2019 Vol XXVIII  No. 7, Apple Creek Enterprises, Apple River, IL 61001:

An aritcle on page 10, titled "Vitamin C for Stings?, written by a commercial beekeeper and registered Pharmacist, James C. Coombs, R. Ph., tells of the experiences of the author working with his daughter who swells up badly after bee stings.  He says that 2000 mg Vit. C. works better thanb the prescribed Benadryl.
