[ The Sweet Story of HIBISCUS ] ~ from HerbCo


The hibiscus shrub is known the world over for its large, vibrantly colored flowers, and is an old-fashioned favorite in the garden to attract hummingbirds, butterflies and other pollinators. While we all admire the spectacular blooms in the landscape, many people don’t expect much more of the flower in a culinary sense than to provide a colorful accent to the main fare on the plate. But the dried flowers are another story – they lend a tart, cranberry-like flavor to a variety of foods and beverages, from tea blends, beers and sauces to roasted meats and sorbet.
