winter in NH...officially

It may be the end of the year but there are still things to forage and beautiful places to forage in.

The Isles of Shoals looked closer than usual, although I'm pretty sure they haven't actually moved.

Buoy beach produces a large and dependable crop of rose hips: rugosa (above) and noid (below).

Sarah helped gather

while Solon and Nathan climbed down to the beach below. We knew they were safe as long as we heard the plonks of rocks flung into the water.

Now what shall I make with them?

Wow... they are uncommonly beautiful against the gray and brown landscape. Enjoy the beach, and those gems.

A gorgeous jelly, anyone? A boozy, rosy cordial? So many possibilities.

Of course you're foraging. God must be in Her heaven.

Merry Christmas!

I like the rose hip wine or jelly options because no need to scoop out the hairy, seedy centers. Beautiful pics! Merry Christmas to you and Michael!

I am thinking sorbet... when I do cranberry sorbet, I put it through a sieve or chinois to get the teensy seeds out. (Boozy cordial sounds nice, too.)

Wow; beautiful landscape and amazing reds! I bet they make a great jam!
