I have plenty of juicy rosella fruits on my bush out in the back. The thing is that I don't want to make jam. That seems to be all anyone ever does with rosellas... I once bought a jar of the whole fruits preserves in syrup and those in the bottom of a glass of champagne were rather yummy.
I was in fact thinking of something a bit healthier, so I picked a few flowers (actually they are the calyx), removed the seed pod and set them into a slow oven (wish I had a dehydrator) until crispy. I haven't had much success in the past with making herbal teas. They often taste like little bits of dried grass to me, not very appetizing.
I am linking this to the Urban farm challenge as this month was all about infusions - I enjoyed this challenge and it has got me imagining more teas I can make. I am glad I tried teas once again as this time it was much more of a success. Thanks for the challenge to spur me on! Why don't you go and see what the others in the challenge have been making.? Have you dried teas? do you have a de-hydrator? Anyone used a solar de-hydrator?
