Hibiscus Facts

When I first came to live in Mexico, I learned to love agua de jamaica, a delicious beverage that was a little bit tart, usually sweetened and served cold. Many years later, I learned that agua de jamaica was made from dried hibiscus flowers. Recently, I have learned that this delicious drink has many health benefits, even medicinal uses, and that after they are boiled and strained, the flowers can be used as a kind of meat substitute in tacos and other dishes!
