  • 200g fresh rosehips
  • 2500ml water

  • 1 tsp arrowroot

To garnish

  • Toasted flaked almonds
  • Dried edible rose petals


  1. Mash the rosehips, transfer to a saucepan and cover with water. Soak for 4 -6 hours. Using the same water, boil the rosehips for 30 minutes or until soft. Remove the rosehips by straining through a very fine sieve lined with muslin.
  2. Retain the liquid and add extra water if necessary to bring up to 1 litre. Bring the rosehip liquid to the boil and add the sugar, reduce heat to simmer.
  3. Mix the arrowroot with 1 tbsp water. Gradually pour this into the gently simmering soup and stir continuously for 3 minutes – do not boil.
