Recipe for Chilean Rosehip Jam


  • 2 kg of rosehips
  • 1 kg of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice


  1. Cut the rosehips in half and place them in a large pot covered with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes with a wooden spoon until you get a smooth and creamy mixture.
  2. Remove the rosehips from the heat and strain them through a sieve and/or a very fine mesh, pressing to obtain the most pulp and remove all the seeds and hairs from the fruit. Weigh the resulting pulp and then weigh an equivalent amount of sugar.
  3. In a preferably copper pot, add the rosehip pulp, sugar, and lemon juice, cook over low heat, stirring until you get the desired consistency.
  4. To test the cooking point, place a little jam on a cold plate and freeze for 2 minutes. Upon removal, the jam should have acquired a jelly-like consistency without being too liquid. If not, continue cooking.
  5. Store the rosehip jam in sterilized glass jars, seal, and store in a cool, dark place.
  6. Consume the rosehip jam as an accompaniment to bread, desserts, or even as a cake filling.
