While walking through the woods with my Dad when I was little, we happened across some roses that had dropped their petals leaving the hips. My Dad told me that they made a great jelly and that he remembered it from when he was little. I remembered that for years, and scoured numerous cookbook looking for a recipe on how to make it with no success. Finally, I found this one on the internet. It was taken from the Native Indian Wild Game Fish & Wild Foods Cookbook. Hope this can help someone else too.
