Wild Rose Hip and Orange Tea
rose hips are huge this year with all of the rain we've had (a lot for this dry part of the North Cascades). They're bright orange and red, with ample meat enveloping their seed-filled center. The meat (the rind) is filled with vitamin-C. I harvest the hips, laboriously peal off the rind to dehydrate with slices of orange. We use this dried blend as a throat soothing tea. It's delicious with a dab of honey.
