      Title: Rosehip syrup
 Categories: Misc, Beverages, British
      Yield: 600 Mls
      2 lb Ripe rosehips; washed
      1 lb Sugar
     60 fl Boiling water
     30 fl Boiling water
  Bring the water to the boil in a large, preferably stainless steel or
  unchopped enamelled saucepan. Press the rosehips through the coarse
  blade of a mincer and place immediately in the first (larger) batch
  of boiling water. Bring the mixture to the boil again . As soon as
  the mixture boils, remove the pan from the heat and leave 15 minutes.
    Pour the rosehips into a scalded jelly bag and allow the bulk of the
  juice to drip through. Return the pulp in the jelly bag to the
  saucepan, add the second quantity of boiling water, re-boil, then
  allow to stand without further heating for another 10 minutes.
    Pour the juice into a clean saucepan and simmer to reduce to the
  volume of the second quantity of water. Add sugar in the proportion
  of 1 lb for each 30 fl of juice. Stir till dissolved, then boil for a
  further 5 minutes.
    Pour the hot syrup into hot bottles and seal at once. Sterilise for
  5 minutes. If using corks only, seal with melted paraffin or sealing
   NB. It is advisable to use small bottles as the syrup will not keep
  for more than a week or two once opened.
