Kitchen Medicine



Rosehip (Rosa canina)


Very rich in vitamin C, this is the tea of choice for coughs and colds.
It also makes a very refreshing and healthy summer drink when served with ice.
The seeds of the rosehips contain much of the healing virtues, thus they should not be discarded when picking and drying fresh rosehips.
3oz of whole rosehips simmered in 1/2 liter of milk for about 3/4 of an hour makes a soothing remedy for bladder and kidney troubles, including stones.
The leaves are slightly astringent and are beneficial for lung troubles.
A marmalade made from the fruits makes an excellent and very tasty and healthy bread spread which helps to ward off winter colds.
The seeds simmered in water for 1 hour make an excellent diuretic decoction for oedema, rheumatism and gout.
Rosehip tincture strengthens the stomach (steep a handful of dried fruit in 3/4 l of brandy).
