Hibiscus Simple Syrup

Recipe and image courtesy of Dez The Bakist

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups granulated sugar (I use organic)

  • 1/4 cup dried hibiscus petals

  • 4 cups water

Instructions:

Put all ingredients in a large pan. You want to have room in case the mixture bubbles up. Stir everything together on med-high heat until sugar is dissolved. Remember! ONLY once the sugar is dissolved it is safe to remove the spoon. Adjust the heat until you have the mixture at just a simmer, not a rolling boil. Keep it simmering for about 20-30 mins or until you can see it has cooked down about 1/3 of the way. Pull off the heat and let sit until cool enough to strain into a jar or container to store.
