Rose hips perfume poached pineapple in a stellar sundae.
A rose is a rose is a rose, but a rose hip is something special. These precious berry-like fruits are literally born of roses, and, in spring here in the U.S., they are just beginning to bud.
Popular in teas, jellies, beverages and other dishes, rose hips are rich in vitamin C and delicate in flavor—a flowery but tangy essence that is just magical with the right dish. One of our favorites—a simple sundae—does the trick nicely.
Pineapple tops ice cream with a side of crisp cinnamon wafers.
