Rose hips are the orange or red fruits of the rose that appear after the blooming season.
Miss Marple surely would have brewed rose hip tea on an autumn day as I did mid morning today – for the first time!
I harvested a small handful and simmered the rinsed hips for a few minutes until I could lightly crush the pods with a potato masher, then poured the brew through a tea strainer into my cup, added sweetener, and enjoyed my first taste of rose hip tea. It was quite delicious and I will definitely look forward to drinking it again when more rose hips ripen.
I am the world’s biggest Miss Marple fan. I love all of Agatha Christie’s books-but feel a special connection to her Jane Marple stories. Since I like her so much, I thought it would be fun to explore the idea of Living Miss Marple!
