Rose Hip Soup
« on: October 07, 2016, 02:40:17 pm »
simmer half a kilo of rose hips, whole but stalks removed, in half a litre of water for one hour, smashing a bit occasionally with a wooden spoon. Drip through a double thickness of muslin (or an on its last leg's tea towel) overnight.
The juice has a strong and concentrated flavour and only one eighth of a litre (quarter of a pint) is needed for each recipe.

One eighth litre RH juice
15 g butter

1 small onion
1 tspn. tomato puree
one and a half pints stock; chicken or veg.
1 tspn. Worcester sauce
half tspn. salt
black pepper

melt butter in a pan, add the finely chopped onion, cover pan and sweat gently, over a low heat for 5 mins. Add the tom puree, stir and add RH juice, stock, Worcester sauce and seasoning. Cover pan and simmer gently for 20 mins. Push through a sieve or liquidise, check seasoning and serve hot with croutons.
