My homemade rosehip puree
The rosehips are ripe in Sweden and that means a lot of picking here at home! I make rosehip puree that I can use in plenty of different desserts. Yum!
It's rosehip season and all I want to do is pick more and more! I often make a nice rosehip puree that I can use as the main ingredient in all kinds of projects in my kitchen. My kids love my traditional Swedish rosehip soup (served cold as for example a dessert.)
The best thing about this puree is that I don't have to remove any seeds. And it's so convenient that I can store my puree in the freezer and use any time I want.
- Remove all the plant parts from the rosehips, it's fast and easy work with the help of a small knife.
- Rinse the rosehips if necessary.
- Put the rosehips in a large pot and fill it up with enough water to completely cover the rosehips.
- Boil until soft.
- Put the rosehips and the water (don't remove the water before) in a food processor with an attachment you can use to puree the rosehips and separate the seeds from the pulp.
- You can run the seeds through the food processor once more if there's still pulp mixed in with the seeds.
You could also make a smaller batch of puree by simply pushing it through a fine sieve, but it's difficult to make larger quantities this way. Store the puree in the freezer.
The process doesn't look very appealing but it's so worth the messy work!
