PEAR – ROSE HIP CREAM

December 20, 2014

20 December! C minus 4! Housten we have almost lift off for christmas!

This fruit cream is seriously a special recipe – worthy of a christmas dinner. Non the least because it takes sooo much time to prepare the rose hips. Impressive if you have the patience to scrape out the seed of 500g of wild rose! I’m usually happy if I even find 150g – and that already takes me an hour to prepare for cooking.

The two fruit creams are really delicious as separates. Your choice if you want to mix them together in the end. I love the taste of wild rose – but it might be too intense or strange for some people.
