ingredients

  • 1 3/4 ounces fresh rosehips
  • 1 teaspoon flaked sea salt, such as Maldon
  • 3 tablespoons glucose
  • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons dried ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon citric acid
recipe tools

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees F or its lowest setting.

Bash the rosehips in a mortar and pestle to break them up slightly and split the fruit. Remove and discard the seeds.

Add the salt to the split rosehips and give them another quick bash with the pestle. The goal is just to break them up a little, not turn them into mush. Scatter the rosehips on a baking sheet and put in the oven. Immediately turn off the heat and leave in the oven until they are dried but not burnt, about 30 minutes.

Grind the dried rosehips to a fine powder in a spice grinder. Mix together with the glucose, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and citric acid. Store in an airtight container.

Add half of the sherbet to 4 1/2 cups warm water. Stir and drink freely.

Keep the remainder completely dry in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.
