Its harvest time, and there is nothing more gratifying than eating the fruits that have emerged, from the midsummer nights dream. Today I shall make some Rosehip Jam, or “KISIEL,” with Rose hips harvested right from the Forks, Canada. If you are into jammin, try this old Belarus recipe my Baba taught me.
100 g Rose berries (rosehips)
half cupful sugar
2 tblspz flour
Sort the fresh berries & give them a wash. Cover them with water and put them aside for an hour. After an hour, press the berries through a sieve & remove the stones. Pour in hot water, add the sugar, mix it and bring to a boil on low temperature. Pour in the dissolved flour and bring to a gentle boil again. After this cools, you can add some fruit if you like, or just use it on the grain cereals. Thats the traditional way, but Baba insisted it can be used on ice cream too!
