Sea Buckthorn

This year for the first time I have pick buckthorn. A very tedious and painful harvest, because sea buckthorn has relentlessly sharp long thorns.

Boiled with sugar was out of the delicious berries a full-bodied and vitamin C-rich juice. As a mixed drink, over Vanilla-ice, made hot or cold times as large in a treat.

Rose Hips

Rose hips have been completely used. The flesh was boiled down to a delicious jam - rich in vitamin C and lycopene.

The dried peels and cores were tea. Due to the high proportion of vegetable acids and Pektiden rose hip tea may cause slight diuretic and laxative and can be used well for bladder and kidney problems, and in the cold season.
