Talk about Slow Jamming - I've been waiting for months for these to be ready - watching the Rosella flowers (Hibiscus Sabdariffa - not the birds) turn into these oddities:
We harvested a good half bucket of Rosellas from 5 bushes and planned to make very pink jam and cordial. It took an afternoon to separate the seeds from the calyxes.
Rosellas are very high in Vitamin C and they can also be used to make "Hibiscus Tea," which is apparently anti-hypertensive and mildly diuretic. Anyway it tastes good and I highly recommended this 100% homemade beverage.
