"The rose hips in this jam are uncooked so the jam tastes fresh and sweet; it retains its bright rosy-orange color. The hardest part is seeding the hips which can be sticky, but so worth it! Use wild or cultivated rugosa roses that haven't been sprayed with pesticide; pick them in the fall when they are bright red. I adapted my recipe from one in a Euell Gibbons field guide. " — Cazuela

trimmed and seeded rose hips
1 (1.75 ounce) package
powdered fruit pectin
This jam tastes so much better than anything you can buy in the store, and the color is amazing. Hardest part is removing the seeds; the rest takes no time at all. I freeze this and use it all year. I pick the hips from wild bushes that grow along the waterfront near salt water.
