What to do if you find rose hips growing near a lake full of trout? | Category: Fishing Talk

You wander around the lake looking for signs of trout and suddenly you find yourself in rosehip paradise.
bushes full of nice red ripe rosehips.
Now most people would probably just marvel at the beauty and not realise how tasty those rose hips are.
They require a bit of preparation for sure but if you go through all the hassle and then combine them with a freshly caught trout you got a heavenly meal on your hands.
So check out our latest video to find out how we prepare a fresh trout with rosehips.

Looks nice. I have never used rosehip but I might give it a try next time I find some...

Dissolve a little of the pink salt in some water. Then tell me what it smells like !!

Do you get many rose hips in Australia? Only down south I suppose, aye?
You reckon the salt stinks? haha. I used that to make wet brine and haven't noticed any smell.
But I admit I didn't really stick my nose into the jar yet. Will try the smell test next time.

Yes, we do. But I don't think I have ever seen them growing wild. I have only even seen rose bushes in gardens.

The smell of Himalayan pink salt is very subtle...You might not even notice it unless you are actually expecting an aroma...

Have you ever been camping near cows? An old trick is to put dried cow dung on your camp fire and it keeps the mossies away...It is not a bad smell. But it is very unique. A subtle aroma...Well, if you dissolve Himalayan pink salt in a little water, it smells just like burnt cow poo.

Nothing wrong with that. In fact many parts of the world use cow poo as their main fuel source for cooking and heating. I just find it interesting that pink salt smells just like burnt cow poo.
