Hibiscus-infused sugar is a treat for your drink recipes or even in baking. It is simple and beautiful, too.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup dried red hibiscus flowers
  • ¼ cup dried white hibiscus flowers
  • 1 cup superfine white sugar

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Mix red and white hibiscus flowers together, breaking them into slightly smaller pieces.
  2. 2 Place 3/4 cup flowers and sugar in a mini food processor. Pulse until flowers are pulverized. Use the pulse method to ensure the sugar doesn't heat up and melt.
  3. 3 Place remaining 1/4 cup flowers in an airtight container. Cover with sugar mixture. Let infuse for at least 3 days before using.
