How to Prepare Rose Hips
You can use whole, fresh rose hips, but the seeds inside have an irritating, hairy covering, so it is recommended you remove them prior to eating.
Trim off the stem and blossom ends. Hold the hip securely and slice it in half, then remove the inner seeds. You can do all of this trimming with a pair of scissors if the hips are too small to use a knife on.
Now rinse off the hips and prepare as you choose. Here are a few suggestions, below.
What Can I Use Rose Hips For?
Rose hips make great jellies, sauces, syrups, soups and seasoning, even fruit leather. To get a sense of the taste of rose hips, start out brewing yourself a cup of tea.
You can use fresh or dried rose hips, for a simple rose hips tea. You’ll need about twice as many rose hips if using fresh. For fresh rose hip tea, steep 4 to 8 rose hips in a cup of boiling water for about 10 to 15 minutes.
If you want to try out the flavor of rose hips, but don’t have any in your garden or you aren’t up to all the seeding and prep work, rose hip tea is widely available in stores. Don’t use aluminum pans or utensils that could discolor the hips. Aluminum also destroys their vitamin C. Stainless steel is fine.
Ginger is a plant with leafy stems and yellowish green flowers. The ginger spice comes from the roots of the plant. Ginger is native to warmer parts of Asia, such as China, Japan, and India, but now is grown in parts of South American and Africa. It is also now grown in the Middle East to use as medicine and with food.
Ginger is commonly used for various types of “stomach problems,” including motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), nausea, nausea caused by cancer treatment, nausea caused by HIV/AIDS treatment, nausea and vomiting after surgery, as well as loss of appetite.
Other uses include pain relief from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis, menstrual pain, and other conditions. However, there is not strong evidence to support the use of ginger for these conditions.
Some people pour the fresh juice on their skin to treat burns. The oil made from ginger is sometimes applied to the skin to relieve pain. Ginger extract is also applied to the skin to prevent insect bites.
In foods and beverages, ginger is used as a flavoring agent.
In manufacturing, ginger is used as for fragrance in soaps and cosmetics.
One of the chemicals in ginger is also used as an ingredient in laxative, anti-gas, and antacid medications.
How does it work?
Ginger contains chemicals that may reduce nausea and inflammation. Researchers believe the chemicals work primarily in the stomach and intestines, but they may also work in the brain and nervous system to control nausea.
The potential benefits of garlic intake for decreased risk of cardiovascular disease have been studied in a variety of conditions including heart attack (myocardial infarct), coronary artery disease (CAD), high blood pressure (hypertension), and atherosclerosis. The everyday flexibility of our blood vessels has been shown to improve with intake of garlic, and the likelihood of blood vessel damage due to chronic excessive inflammation has been shown to decrease when this allium vegetable in consumed on a regular basis.
Studies on garlic-containing meal plans and cancer risk show potential benefits from regular intake of this much-loved vegetable. Varying decreases in risk have been associated with garlic consumption in different body locations, including the upper digestive tract (including the mouth, pharynx, larynx and esophagus) as well as the stomach. In multiple studies, the sulfur-containing compounds in garlic have been directly implicated in these potential health benefits.
Studies are beginning to give us a better understanding about the amount of garlic needed to provide us with overall health benefits. In terms of amount, approximately 20 grams of garlic (in food form) best describes the quantity needed, and in terms of frequency, 1-3 times per week translates into measurable benefits.
Sulfur-Containing Compounds in Garlic
The six categories of sulfur-containing compounds presented below will give you an initial look at the remarkable complexity of this allium vegetable. In terms of potential health benefits, each of these compounds has been studied fairly extensive. However, it is also worth noting here that the majority of studies have not focused on the presence of compounds in fresh garlic consumed as a food, but rather on garlic supplements, whether they be oils, tablets, powders, or other types of extracts.
