This is easy to make and taste lovely. All you need is about one kg. of Roselle flower (raw). Wash it and remove the seed. Put everything in a big pot, add sugar and water and bring it to a boil. I normally will make more. Let it cool down and I will bottled it and put it in the fridge. You can leave it in the fridge for few days and it will still taste nice.
My sons said it taste a bit like wine minus the alcohol, after a few days in the fridge.It does taste a little bit sour like grape wine. I did try to plant the seeds. The plants grew well and turn out quite big but the fruits drop before it gets a chance to grew big. Guess the weather in Kuala Lumpur is not cool enough for it to grow properly. The person I bought it from, grew it on a hill, cooling place in Malaysia. Look at the flower, so big and nice.
Hope this plant is available to you at your home. Try it. It is a very refreshing drink and easy to prepare. Hope you like it and thanks for reading.
