traditionally served at christmas, this recipe is sweet and refreshing and perfect for summer BBQ's. sorrel also has great health benefits. Unlike most sorrel recipes, I like to keep it raw.
did you know you can grow sorrel at home!? check out this comprehensive guide.
¾ cup coconut sugar or 5 tbsp agave (add more to taste)
3 inches ginger
2 cups dried sorrel (hibiscus)
6 cups water
1 lime, sliced
1 orange, sliced
10 whole allspice berries
1 cinnamon stick
1. blend the ginger, water and sugar
2. in a large pot, combine with all other ingredients except the lime and sparkling water and leave to simmer on a very low heat for an hour. to keep it raw you can alternatively steep covered in the fridge for 4-6 hours, or overnight.
3. strain the mixture, reserving the liquid.
4. fill up a glass half way and top with sparkling water. Sweeten to taste if necessary.
serve over ice with a slice of fresh lime.
this goes EXTREMELY well with rum…
