Rose Hip Freezer Jam

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Put the prepared rose hips, water, and lemon juice in a blender; blend until smooth, about 15 seconds. Small bits of rose hips skin are okay. Gradually add the sugar while blender is running. Blend until sugar is dissolved, about 30 seconds or so.
  2. Stir the pectin into 3/4 cup water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil hard for about 1 minute. Slowly pour into the rose hip mixture; blend for about 30 seconds.
  3. Pour into small containers with lids. Store in the refrigerator. Jam that is not used within a few weeks can be stored in the freezer for up to a year.


  • Cook's Note:
  • A half pound of ripe rose hips is enough for 1 cup of processed hips. Prepare the rose hips by cutting off the flower and stem ends. Cut the hip in half and remove the seeds.

So wonderful! I am enjoying this on rustic bread with walnut butter right now, and it is an absolute luxury.

It has a bright orangey-red color and a delicious fruity taste that you can't quite put your finger it apricot? No, it's unique. Very tasty and something you can't just go out and buy.

I love this jam. It tastes like a jar full of summer-mowed lawns, flowers blooming, sun shining. The recipe is a bit confusing as you “add the water” and then add more water, but there are two i...
