Rose Hips at the Union Square Greenmarket

What I love most about the farmers market is the inspiration it brings me.  There has never been a funk that a trip to Union Square has not pulled me out of.  Today, I saw these rose hips and bought a bunch.  We did as the farmer said- boiled them for 6 minutes, but I added some roses, hibiscus, saffron, and honey to the pot as well.  The result is a Vitamin C packed tonic that is delicious and full of immunity boosting ingredients.  Rose hips, by the way, are one of the best plant based sources of Vitamin C and are commonly drunk and consumed in Europe.
