nyperRose hips, also sometimes spelled as one word rosehips, are the golf-ball sized red fruit of a variety of rose bush that is native to Alaska among other places. Rosehips are a part of the same fruit family as apples and impart a warm, floral, and fruity flavor. Rose hip syrup is a particularly versatile way to use rosehips in the kitchen.

The sweet syrup can be used on pancakes, porridge, or oatmeal in place of the traditional maple syrup. The syrup can also be used as a sweet, floral ingredient in mixed cocktails. And, of course, nothing is better than rose hip syrup drizzled on ice cream, bread pudding, or other desserts – even just plain yoghurt!

Here in Scandinavia we also use rose hips to make a dessert soup served hot or cold depending on the season. The soup is usually served with a dollop sweetened wipped cream. Powdered dried rose hips are also infused in hot water and drunk like you would tea around here – Ted
