    Rosehips super source of Vit C. 20 times more vit C than oranges weight for weight. While they say to wait for first frost (it brings the sugar into the fruit) to pick. You can cheat by picking now and putting in freezer for a half hour .

    Add water, blend to break down fruit, gently simmer...

    Add water, blend to break down fruit, gently simmer with preferred sweetener to taste, does not need much, it is not bitter.

    Most important strain through muslin or such as these are called “itch back” and last year I strained through a sieve which was not enough, thus every time I drank it my back got itchy.

    Heat bottle to sterilise. I store mine in fridge and it lasts a month or so a friend told me lately he stores his in a cool sry place and his last six months. He also adds lemon which would help preserve it.

    Enjoy

    My experience of planting potatoes from Castlecomer using the lasagne technique with newspaper has paid off. It’s funny really as I got the potato seed from seed savers and forgot about them so they were really shrivelled and I thought these will not grow. Thankfully they did.

    I find it very positive that this months edition of National Geographic Magazine is completely dedicated to our lovely herbs and their benefits.

    What a great way to educate people.

    Houseleek (sempervivum Tectorum)

    An old friend of mine who is a retired homeopath uses Houseleek to treat her shingles with success. She splits a piece and rubs the juice on area of her skin that are painful or inflamed 3 times a day.
