Hibiscus flowers only last for one day on the stem, but keep considerably longer when dried and stored properly.

The brightly colored blooms are typically dried for use in making teas and other beverages, including alcoholic cocktails. But don't overlook other culinary possibilities—sprinkle the dried flowers into soups and custards or mix into bread dough before baking.

You can also use bits of dried hibiscus flowers to decorate table settings, homemade cards, gift bags and more.

hibiscus flower

Hibiscus sabdariffa is a tropical flowering plant in the mallow family. In fact, it is commonly referred to as rose mallow. This species is native to west Africa, where it is known as carcade. However, because it is widely cultivated and used as food in so many parts of the world, the plant is also known by many other names, most notably as roselle, sorrel and Flor de Jamaica.

The vibrantly colored flowers add color to teas, soft drinks and other beverages. For example, in Africa the dried calyx is made into Sudan Tea, and in the Caribbean sorrel tea is combined with beer to produce a popular beverage called Shandy Sorrel.

The dried flowers are also used in cooking. In Australia, Burma, Nigeria and Trinidad, the whole buds are made into jam or jelly. In the Philippines, hibiscus is an ingredient in Polynesian Chicken Stew. In India, hibiscus is used to flavor soups and chicken and fish.
