Hibiscus Ginger Simple Syrup Recipe

July 12, 2014

Hibiscus is believed to cool the body, nourish tissue and help eliminate excess bodily fluid. It is tart and refreshing and adds color and flavor to a variety of fruity tisanes. It is great iced or hot, and accents fruits well.

Hibiscus Ginger Simple Syrup Recipe

from Tara O’Keefe’s recipe

2 cups water
1 cup sugar
4 Tbs dried hibiscus flowers
1 Tbs diced ginger 

Combine water, sugar, dried hibiscus, and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Turn off heat and allow mixture to steep for at least 20 minutes until all the sugar has dissolved and the syrup is deep magenta in color. Strain syrup through a fine mesh strainer into a stain-resistant container.  Chill in the refrigerator until cold and ready to use. To store, cover tightly in the refrigerator and use within 3 weeks. Makes 2 cups.
