Has anyone here made this and was it a success? I tried a few years ago but I didn't have enough muslin to strain it through so gave up. I saw loads of rosehips today so I might give it another go. I was wondering if it tasted anything like that rosehip syrup we used to be given as kids.

I have it now but it is just the same as the link that Buenchico has put there ,it is in a lovely book called Food from the Wild and it says it was taken from the Ministry of Food recipe from WW11,they picked 450 tons between 1943 -46 to make into syrup because it was the best source of vitamin C , it should be nice if you give it time to drip through the muslin but be careful...

That's the one (I had forgotten that name) We were fed it by the spoonful rather than putting it on porridge etc.
Ooh, yes, Delrosa, that and some sort of orange juice in a square glass bottle with a turquoise screw top.
We have loads of rosehips where we currently are too, not that I’ve ever thought about it, but I didn’t realise you could make your own rosehip syrup.
yes i have done so and can give you the recipe when I have found the book again

Thank you ff. That is really kind. I think the problem last time I tried to make it was I didn't have enough muslin so tried to substitute the bits of net curtain (that I used for jam making) by folding them over multiple times. That didn't strain out the little hairs that are inside of them so I gave up.

I made wine out of them, it was really nice, a much better use for your rose hips.
If you don't have muslin use bags designed for straining wine or cheese making which can be washed and reused.
I loved Delrosa as a Child. I had it every night before bed.! It was very healthy.
