Hi kaybee, your right rose hips are really good for you! tons of vitamin c and other good stuff.
I used to eat them all the time when I had access to them. Just eat them as you would berries. They are ripe when they are plump (but firm) and red in color. If you get them dried they should be a bit chewy in texture, if they are REALLY dried the most you can do with them is make tea or try to soak them.
Enjoy your rose hips!:)

Its funny, I was thinking about roses this morning. I spent some time googling recipes & ways to eat them. Most everything I found said to either cook them or put them in a salad.
I'm still searching.
