eek - 3lbs of rosehips and I haven't even moved on to my next picking patch! Can you freeze rosehips? I hope so. I just spent an hour picking over them and getting them clean. Perhaps if I had them all prepared and ready to go?
As for crab apples, well, I still need to cut away any bruised bits, but at the moment I have 4lbs of them, that'll probably be more like 3 or 3.5lbs once I've processed them, but I doubt I have that many empty jars.... eek. What do I do? Shall I boil them up, strain them, then freeze the juice and jellify it once I have more jars or will the freezing change their nature so they don't jell? (or gel?)
