The Many Uses of Rose Hips

Rosa rugosa is a species of wild rose that grows everywhere in New England, especially by the seashore. Known as beach roses, pink and white blossoms are still going strong in September providing food for the bees and other pollinators. Soon the bushes will be completely covered in rose hips. They are best harvested after the first frost.

The hips are coveted wild edibles which can be made into jelly, wine, baked goods, syrup and more. I've provided some links below to a variety of uses for rose hips. The list of possibilities is quite extensive. Let us know if you try any and your results!
