- - glass container (jar)
- We will use dried rosehips, without seeds from the tea or if we have whole dried rosehips, we will cut them in half and remove the seeds.
A more effective method is to grind dried rosehips with a grinder. Even if the dried rosehips are whole, with seeds, the removal of the seeds will not be a problem, because the grinder will not be able to crush them, in the end we will sift the rosehip powder.
- Add the dried, seedless rosehips (pieces or rosehip powder) to the container (jar).
- Add the alcohol (be sure to cover the dried rosehips) until the container is full. It is ideal to use as pure an alcohol as possible over 50 strength. You can also use brandy or vodka.
- We close the container with a lid and leave it to macerate for 4 weeks, in a dark and ventilated place. During maceration, it is recommended to shake the jar at least once a day.
→ In the end, it is ideal for the obtained tincture to be filtered with a sieve / gauze, then left to decant, in the refrigerator, for 3-7 days, for a complete clarification. The clear part is poured into small, dark bottles with a dropper to avoid contact with air and light during use.
→ For small quantities and if the pieces of dried rosehips are large, there is no need to filter the tincture, you can keep it as it is (even with rosehips).
→ It is recommended for consumption within 2 years of preparation.
→ During maceration it is good to shake the tincture 3-4 times a day.
→ The maceration time may vary depending on the strength of the alcohol and how the rosehips were used: pieces (of tea) or powder. For example for rosehip powder and alcohol of 80% concentration, the minimum maceration time is 7 days.
