3 pounds of rose hips
3 pounds of sugar
1 gallon boiling water
Wash the rose hips and cut them in half.
Put them in large bowl and pour boiling water on them.
Stir well with wooden spoon.
Cover bowl and leave for two weeks.
Strain off liquid into another bowl and add three pounds of sugar.
Stir until dissolved.
Cover bowl and leave for 5 days, stirring daily.
Bottle, remembering to cork loosely at first, and store in a cool, dark place.
Push in corks when wine has finished fermenting.
It will be ready to drink in 6 months.
1 1/3 cups milk per serving
1 tsp. honey (All natural honey is best)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract cinnamon (freshly ground is best, but store bought will do)
Warm milk, be careful not to boil it.
In each mug add your honey and vanilla.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.
This one is great not only for Imbolc but for a nice coming in off of the sea from fishing.
This is a drink that will get you feeling better in no time.
I got this from a friend in the Isle Of Mann, where fishing was and still is a good trade.
