Harvest and harvest
The best time to collect straws is after frost, when they get a deep red or reddish orange color. They should be soft, not shrunk to the stem. After selecting, remove the stems. Spread them on stainless steel mold and dry them, but not completely – this will make it very difficult to remove the seeds. When partially dried, cut each hip in half and scrape all the seeds and hair. Wipe the hull completely and place it in plastic freezer bags. They can be stored in the freezer for a while or refrigerated for a few months.
Always add straws as an infusion. Boiling straws in water destroys vitamin C content. Avoid hips of roses sprayed with chemical insecticides or pesticides. Ask your doctor or health care professional about using rose tea if you are taking any prescription medicine. If you notice any side effects, stop drinking immediately and consult your doctor. Avoid sweating rose hips in aluminum pans Aluminum discolours and discolors tea and also destroys vitamin C content. .
