Processing rose hips
I am trying to make better use of my rose hips this year, and found some recipes on the internet, but I'm finding it very difficult and time consuming to remove the seeds and the irritating hairs from the hips. Perhaps gloves would help but I was starting to feel like the hairs were getting embedded in my skin. One recipe called for cooking the entire hip and running it through a mill to get out the seeds, I'm wondering if this would remove the hairs well enough or if they would be present in the puree.
Also can the hips just be dried whole to make a satisfactory tea without removing the hairs and seeds.
