Back on October 26th, I posted about sun drying my Roselle (Hibiscus Sabdariffa). I started with 4 trays and it took a couple of days and they were not quite finished drying when I left for my trip so they finished drying inside the house. Turned out just great.
The dried petals can be used for beverages, of course, like tea, but I also used them to top some turkey soup I made which imparted a lemony flavor to the soup.
You can use the dried petals dry, or reconstitute for use in salads and other fresh/raw foods.
You can add the Roselle to or replace lemon, lime or cranberry with Roselle petals. Give it a try and you will be pleased with this Vitamin C rich addition to your ingredient options.

I have been playing more with my food :-) so watch for my next post on a great tasting condiment to add to your cooking enjoyment. Straight from the garden!
Don't forget my 2017 month-by-month gardening calendar for yourself and holiday or birthday gifts. You can use November and December NOW for garden sowing/planting information, maintenance and gardening tips.
Have a best day!
