INFO

We get a wide range of people attending our workshops (join us!) from hipsters looking for alternative lifestyle tips, to parents of searching for a few hours of someone else distracting their kids, right through to older generations looking to reconnect with a past-time they did back in the day. It's for our more senior citizens that the humble rosehip - so common in our hedgerows and pretty much the only thing clinging on in the chillier snaps - evokes a misty-eyed nostalgia for times spent collecting rosehips for just the purpose we are pleased to share with you here. We are reliably informed in person and print alike, that rosehip syrup became a key part of the national diet in the post-war era, when vitamin C was so hard to come by that the foraging of this amazing berry was actively encouraged by the government.

Fast-forward a few decades and the rosehip is now reserved for a small few. It shouldn't be the case, though, and although syrup might not be the most healthy thing to eat in a world full of nutrient shots and smoothies, we can still appreciate this forgotten fruit for its beautiful flavour. Enjoy as you would any syrup: atop pancakes, in a cocktail, drizzled over porridge or yoghurt... or if you're feeling really retro, enjoy a spoonful each morning for that wartime kick of vitamin C.
