So naturally I order the hibiscus flowers online to make Bissap!
2 c. Hibiscus Flowers-Roselle
1 1/2 c. Sugar- or to taste
1 small piece of ginger root
2 qt water
Quickly rinse flowers in cold water. Bring 2 quarts water to boil. Add flowers and simmer 3 minutes. Turn off heat, add ginger piece to pan and allow flowers to steep 10 minutes or until water is a deep purple color. Place 1 1/2 c sugar in pitcher. Pour steeped liquid into pitcher through fine strainer. Stir and chill. Don't add ice...that ruins it per Elder Gundersen.
It's chilling in the fridge for FHE!
