it's time to get back to nature

Nature and magic is all around us. Within us. Everywhere. The power of the seasons, the ebb and flow of the tide, the land, sun, sea, stars, moon. It is time to get back to basics. It’s time to go back to nature.

Rosehip Syrup Recipe

Rosehip Syrup is a winter must.  Packed to the brim full of vitamin C and other natural goodies, rosehip syrup has been used by families for generations to help with lowering fevers, help with colds and flu as well as a general tonic.  What’s more, it tastes delicious!  You can drizzle it neat over hot crumpets, scones, toast, waffles, pancakes or ice cream, dilute it with 5 parts hot water for a soothing tea or 5 parts cold water for a home made cordial.  Perfect for children who are ‘under the weather’.  Also great for freezing and using throughout the year

Ingredients

  • 2kg rosehips
  • 3 litres of water
  • 600g dark brown sugar

Method

  1. In a large saucepan or stew pot, bring to the boil 2 (out of the 3) litres of water.
  2. Wash the rosehips thoroughly and then chop as fine as you can get them.
  3. Add the rosehips to the boiling water, bring the water back to the boil and boil for 5 minutes.
  4. After 5 minutes of rapid boiling, take the pan off the heat and allow rosehips to steep in the water for 30 minutes.
  5. When the rosehips have finishing steeping, drain off the liquid from the rosehips (make sure you save this liquid!) using a fine sieve or jelly bag.
  6. Add the rosehips (now pulp) back to the big pan and cover in the last 1 litre or water.  Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5.
  7. Now add the 2 litres of liquid you had previously saved to the 1 litre of liquid you have just used, add the sugar and warm through until sugar is fully dissolved.
  8. Simmer the syrup for 10 minutes and then allow to cool.
  9. Pour into sterilised bottles or jars.  The syrup can also be frozen by allowing to cool completely and then pouring into freezer safe boxes/tubs.

Notes

Store syrup in the fridge and use within 2 weeks.  If freezing, use within 6 months.

Low Carb Keto BBQ Spice Rub Mix Recipe

We adore BBQ’s in this house, but if you pick up any pre-made BBQ spice mix or sauce in your local supermarket you will see one of the largest ingredients in all of them is sugar. Not great if you are diabetic or following a low carb keto diet. So why not try my version! It tastes just as good and even gives the same charred effect that sugar does when it caramelises on heat.
