Description

In the autumn, I go around forageing in the East Sussex countryside, with its hedgerows sometimes straining under the weight of their fruit or berries, and I intuitively mix up these different flavours, which is what hedgewitchery is all about, well these liqueurs are also medicinal.

I only gently cook the berries and fruit, adding just enough British sugar to taste delicious, and then add this to Russian Vodka for a warming, tasty and health giving tipple.

So here is the healthy stuff:

Rosehips contain 25% more Iron, 20-40% more vitamin C, 25 times more vitamin A and 285 more calcium than oranges.

In addition, Rosehips are a rich source of bioflavoids, pectin, vitamin E, selenium, manganese and the B-complex vitamins. All garden rosehips are edible, but I find that the wild rosehips or haws of the wild Dog Rose/Field Rose have sweetness and a stronger more beautiful flavor.

The ultimate Immune Syrup.

Sloes are blue black berries and are the wild cousins of all our cultivated plums, but they have many more healthful properties; Tannins, which are natural antioxidants, organic acids, sugars and vitamin C. Sloe berries are an excellent astringent. It can be used in treatment of diarrhoea. Its pectin components have a soothing and relaxing effect on stomach inflammations.. Sloe berries can be used for stimulation of our metabolism, and can be of very good use in cases of eczema, herpes, allergies, colds, catarrh, the list goes on…

So you can have a delicious alcoholic drink in the knowledge that you are also giving your body some good stuff too, in moderation of course.
