Hibiscus Sherbet Recipe
I introduced you to hibiscus in my quince dessert recipe. But I didn't give much information about it because I thought this article was right. Now, with your permission, I would like to share with you important information about hibiscus that I think you should know.
Hibiscus is a very powerful antioxidant. It is especially useful in cleansing your intestines from toxins. Accordingly, it also relieves bloating. It is said to aid weight loss. Some doctors say that hibiscus tea is very beneficial for knee pain due to fluid loss in the knees.
It contains a high amount of vitamin C, which is what interests me the most. We add a little bit of hibiscus to every tea we make during our illness. It gives beautiful color and enhances the flavor. Hibiscus has a sour taste similar to rosehip. You can either brew it as tea or consume it as a cold drink with this recipe. In the summer, we make and drink juices and compotes from fresh fruits. But if we did not prepare for the summer in the winter, we do not have much choice of homemade drinks. Here, it is possible to increase the alternatives of homemade drinks with hibiscus.
As you can make it alone, for example, when making quince compote, 1 teaspoon of hibiscus will add a fresh aroma and give a nice color to your compote. You can find hibiscus in herbalists. If they say no when you say hibiscus, you can ask for it as pomegranate flower. Actually, it is not a real pomegranate flower, but I think it is known as pomegranate flower by many people because of its similarity. I think it's one of those things to keep on hand at home.
