How to dry roselle flowers to make eatable flower jam.


Roselle or Hibiscus sabdariffa is a species of Hibiscus. Roselles have edible calyxes that can be dried and used for tea. The calyx is the first part of the flower that is formed when a young plant enters its flowering stage. To dry hibiscus flowers first clip off the flowers. Remove the petals from the calyxes and spread out to dry on a rack and place in indirect sunlight. You can also use a dehydrator to dry the calyxes. When they are completely dry, remove the seeds from the inside of each calyx and store in a cool dry place.
